The Kansas City Chiefs signed former Dolphins and Jaguars quarterback Chad Henne, a Wilson grad, to a two-year contract Friday, giving them a veteran backup for new starter Patrick Mahomes II.

While it is no secret that the aforementioned Mahomes is the next man up in Kansas City, the Chiefs will be in good hands if the up-and-comer encounters a setback.

Henne, 32, is about to enter his 11th professional season. The Michigan product spent the first four seasons of his pro career with the Miami Dolphins before going to the Jacksonville Jaguars for six seasons. Henne was a Titans backup quarterback candidate.


Henne has a career record of 18-35 as a starting quarterback and hasn't completed a single pass since the 2014 season.

His career numbers include 1,159 completions on 1,956 attempts (59.3%) for 12,931 yards with 58 touchdowns and 63 interceptions (75.5 rating). He has played in three games the last three years while backing up Blake Bortles. After previously trading current Washington Redskins quarterback Alex Smith to begin the offseason, the Chiefs have now found the team's backup quarterback for at least the next two seasons.

The Chiefs also re-signed offensive lineman Jordan Devey on Friday.
