Six-year veteran Chad Henne signed a two-year deal to remain with the Jaguars on Friday, according to Mike Garafolo of Fox Sports 1.

The 28-year-old quarterback threw for 3,241 yards in 15 games for Jacksonville last season. He replaced Blaine Gabbert in the first game of the year after Gabbert needed 15 stitches on his throwing hand and then again in a Week 5 loss to the Rams when Gabbert injured his hamstring.

Henne could have begun negotiations with other teams on Saturday, and Houston was reportedly interested in the former University of Michigan star, Garafolo reports. Henne signed a two-year, $6.75 million deal with the Jaguars in 2012 after four seasons with the Dolphins.

He had 13 touchdowns and 14 interceptions last season and led the Jaguars to a 4-4 record in the second half of the season after an 0-8 start.

Henne, who has 55 career touchdowns and 62 interceptions, is 5-14 as a starter with the Jaguars and was 13-18 starting for Miami.
