What Henne does realize he’s keeping the seat warm for Blake Bortles.

But until he’s told otherwise by coach Gus Bradley and offensive coordinator Jedd Fisch, Henne is going to talk like a starter (full of confidence), act like a starter (exuding leadership on and off the field) and try and play like a starter (to make the decision to go to Bortles more difficult).

For the first time since he was with the Miami Dolphins four years ago, Henne enters training camp as the no-doubt starter.

Last month after minicamp, Bradley said Henne was “really steady” throughout, “stacking” good days together while Bortles was up and down, which is to be expected.

“He [Henne] has greater confidence in the offense and because of that, you’re seeing him help out other guys,” Bradley said. “Chad just has a comfort level, but he’s not too comfortable that he’s still not challenging himself, competing and striving. But he’s in a good place.”

Clearly, the Jaguars need better-than-good quarterback play to be competitive this season. It’s something they’ve lacked for years. Jaguars quarterbacks have thrown 13 or more interceptions in five of the last six seasons.

Henne said this season’s situation is more ideal than previous alternatives, but added: “I still take the approach that I’m competing out there — the guys behind me are pushing me each and every day.”

Following the offseason program, Henne said his pre-camp workouts would focus on his footwork and “being consistent with that.”

With the Jaguars in 2012, he knew he was No. 2 behind Blaine Gabbert; last season, the competition between Henne and Gabbert was labeled as open, but ended halfway through the preseason with Gabbert as the Week 1 starter.
