Chad Henne announces his retirement after Super Bowl

Long-time veteran and Kanas City Chiefs backup QB Chad Henne announced on his Instagram after the Super Bowl that he would be retiring from the NFL.

Fantasy Impact

Henne played 15 seasons in the NFL and, despite never starting three or more games since 2014, made nearly $40 million in his career. Henne showed his abilities as a backup QB multiple times with the Chiefs, including against the Browns in the 2020-21 playoffs and again in the 2022-23 playoffs against the Jaguars. With two Super Bowl rings, 13,290 passing yards and 60 touchdowns under his belt, Henne steps aside at the age of 37, putting the Chiefs uniquely back into the QB market.

Chad Henne signs deal with Chiefs

The Chiefs are re-signing backup quarterback Chad Henne to a one-year deal worth $2 million, per Aaron Wilson of Pro Football Network.

Fantasy Impact

Henne has spent the last three seasons backing up Patrick Mahomes in Kansas City. During that time, he has completed 41 of 57 passes for 359 yards and two touchdowns. He's merely an insurance option for the Chiefs and can be left on waivers in fantasy leagues.

Chad Henne passes for 82 yards in relief of Patrick Mahomes

Chiefs backup QB Chad Henne was 11-of-16 for 82 yards in limited duty in Week 7.

Fantasy Impact

Henne replaced Patrick Mahomes after he suffered a scary-looking blow to the head by Titans DL Jeffrey Simmons in the fourth quarter on Sunday. Mahomes was seen chatting with HC Andy Reid shortly after being taken out, so it can only be assumed that he will be ready to go against the Giants on Monday night in Week 8.

Chad Henne converts GW 4th down conversion to earn trip to AFC Championship

Chiefs backup QB Chad Henne came in for injured Patrick Mahomes and completed 6-of-8 passes for 66 yards and an interception in the Chiefs 22-17 win over the Browns in the Divisional Round of the 2021 playoffs.

Fantasy Impact

Henne entered the game in the third quarter once Patrick Mahomes left with a concussion and did not return. Henne threw a pick but redeemed himself by converting a critical, game-sealing 4th down play late in the fourth quarter. If Mahomes isn't cleared by next Sunday, Henne will start in his absence. Still, there are no reports of Mahomes potentially missing the game as of yet.

Chad Henne throws two TD passes in Week 17 spot start

Chiefs backup QB Chad Henne completed 23-of-32 passes for 218 yards and two touchdowns in the Chiefs' 38-21 loss to the Chargers in Week 17.

Fantasy Impact

Henne hasn't logged much playing time behind MVP candidate Patrick Mahomes but played well in his absence. Henne finished with a 111.2 passer rating and did not commit any turnovers in Sunday's loss. The Chiefs have a bye week after clinching the top seed in the AFC, giving Mahomes two weeks of rest and prep heading into the playoffs.
