As expected, the Jets have expressed interest in free-agent QB Chad Henne, formerly of the Dolphins, according to a league source.

As of now, no visit has been arranged, but Henne already has set up a visit to the Jaguars, according to ESPN Insider Adam Schefter.

The Jets' chances here don't appear promising. The Jaguars apparently are concerned about second-year QB Blaine Gabbert, so Henne would have a much better chance of competing for the starting job there as opposed to the Jets, who just gave Mark Sanchez a contract extension. The Jaguars could offer $4 million per year, and there's no way the Jets will go that high.

They'd love to have him, though, especially since he already knows Tony Sparano's offense.

UPDATE: A source confirmed the Jets have set up a visit with QB Drew Stanton (Lions), as reported by the Daily News. Stanton is 2-2 as a starter and has thrown all of 187 passes in his career.
