The New York Jets actively seek an experienced quarterback after Aaron Rodgers' season-ending Achilles tendon injury.
They reached out to retired Super Bowl champion Chad Henne for this purpose.
Henne, aged 38, spent the last five seasons as the Chiefs' backup quarterback, winning two Super Bowls.
Despite limited playing time, Henne shone by leading a playoff touchdown drive when Mahomes was injured.
In 2020, Henne made a crucial pass that helped the Chiefs beat the Browns in the playoffs.
During his Chiefs career, Henne completed 41 of 59 passes for 359 yards and two touchdowns.
Henne started his career with the Dolphins in 2008, accumulating an 18-36 record as a starter.
Nathaniel Hackett, the Jets' offensive coordinator, worked as an offensive coach for the Jaguars during Henne's tenure.
The Jets aim to acquire players familiar with Hackett's offensive system to ease the quarterback transition.
Potential targets for the team include former Hackett quarterbacks like Brett Rypien, Josh Johnson, and Brandon Allen.
