Jacksonville Jaguars head coach Gus Bradley feels that sitting behind Chad Henne will be beneficial for rookie quarterback Blake Bortles in the 2014 season.

Jacksonville Jaguars head coach Gus Bradley believes that the 2014 season is a great opportunity for quarterback Blake Bortles to learn from Chad Henne.

Henne was named as the club's starting signal caller ahead of the campaign despite the Jaguars' use of the third overall pick in the Draft on Bortles.

However, Bradley is adamant that the learning experience will be beneficial for the former UCF Knights man.

"With Chad, we're looking at it and [saying], 'Here's a guy that has experience and, with another year in the system, is playing faster,'" Bradley told NFL Network.

"We've got a guy that's experienced and playing fast, and that's what we want. Blake's got inexperience, but he's really progressing fast, and there are so many learning opportunities for him playing behind Chad."

The Jaguars face the Philadelphia Eagles in their season opener on Sunday.
