Gabbert, a former first-round pick of Jacksonville's, couldn't hold on to the starting job in each of his last two seasons with the Jags. Over 28 games he completed 53.3 pct. of his passes for 4,357 yards with 22 touchdowns and 24 interceptions.
General manager Dave Caldwell said he wouldn't mind bringing Gabbert back. At the very least, Caldwell said, Gabbert could be an above-average backup. However, he also said the team could re-sign Chad Henne. If the team re-signs Henne and drafts a quarterback with the third pick, Gabbert would likely not return. Gabbert started three games this season.
Gabbert lost his starting job to Chad Henne after dealing with some injuries early in the season. He made three starts -- all losses -- completing 48.8 percent of his passes (42 of 86) for 481 yards, one touchdown and seven interceptions.
Gabbert has struggled mightily between injuries this season, completing just 49 percent of his passes with one touchdown and seven interceptions.
Henne has thrown for 621 yards in the last two games combined, but no touchdowns. The winless Jaguars scored just six points Sunday against San Diego.
Gabbert has struggled mightily between injuries this season, completing just 49 percent of his passes with one touchdown and seven interceptions. His official benching could threaten his long-term position with the team.
