Chad Henne will sign with the Kansas City Chiefs according to Mike Garafolo:

The Chiefs needed a veteran back-up after trading Alex Smith earlier this offseason. The sky is the limit for Patrick Mahomes, but as Garafolo says, they need a guy that can mentor him and that can step in and play if Mahomes gets injured.

The Titans search for a back-up quarterback continues after releasing Matt Cassel earlier this offseason. They had Henne in for a visit and were even rumored to be attempting to trade for Brett Hundley.

The quarterback market has dried up really quickly. The Titans really need a veteran to back-up Marcus Mariota. They only have 6 draft picks, so it would be nice if they didn’t have to give one of those up to acquire a guy. Free agency would be ideal, but now you are down to guys like Geno Smith as the only viable options.
