Report: Miami Dolphins Ending Henne Era

Not that this comes as a surprise to anyone who follows the Miami Dolphins, but a South Florida Sun-Sentinel story today is citing multiple sources as saying the Chad Henne era in Miami is officially over. According to the Omar Kelly report, the Dolphins will not be offering a contract to their one-time quarterback of the future.

Henne is 13-18 as a starter with the Dolphins, and missed most of last season following a separated shoulder on his non-throwing side. His contract expires with tthe start of the new league year on March 13, making him an unrestricted free agent.

Asked durnig his Senior Bowl media availability about the future of Henne, Dolphins genegral manager Jeff Ireland responded, "Chad has done what we've asked him to do. I like Chad personally very well. He's very smart. Very intelligent. Very tough. A football guy. He loves being around the game and is a very good teammate. But this football team didn't win enough games when he was quarterback here. But that doesn't mean he did everything wrong, or right. If he goes somewhere else, Chad's a good football player. He can play in this league."

Throughout this offseason, Ireland, Dolphins owner Stephen Ross, and even players, such as Pro Bowl wide receiver Brandon Marshall, have repeatedly expressed a desire to find an upgrade at the quarterback position. Henne led the Dolphins to an 0-4 record this season, before his injury, which was followed by a 6-6 record from backup Matt Moore.

The Dolphins have had 16 starting quarterbacks over the past 12 seasons, the most over that span in the NFL.
