Henne began his NFL career as a 2nd pick of the Miami Dolphins during the 2008 NFL Draft. He would play for the Dolphins, Jacksonville Jaguars and Chiefs and last served as a starting QB for the Jaguars during the 2013 season.
Since 2018, Henne served as the backup for Patrick Mahomes in Kansas City. Though he appeared in just 3 regular season games this season in mop-up time, Henne went 5-for-7 for 23 yards and a touchdown during a playoff win against Jacksonville after Mahomes was injured.
During his time at Michigan, Henne threw for 9,715 yards and 87 touchdowns as a four-year contributor for the Wolverines. He is still the program’s all-time leader in both categories and retires as a two-time Super Bowl champion.
Congrats on a successful career for Henne!
