It is possible that the Miami Dolphins reach into their past for a veteran backup quarterback.

Chad Henne is on the radar, according to a league source.

Henne, 32, had a 13-18 record in 31 starts for Miami between 2009 and 2011.

Henne posted a 5-17 record in 22 starts for the Jacksonville Jaguars between 2012 and 2014.

In 2008, the Dolphins made Henne a second-round draft choice out of Michigan.

Four years later, the Dolphins drafted Ryan Tannehill, who will be Miami’s starter this season.

Earlier this month, the Daily Dolphin outlined some quarterbacks who might fit the bill as Matt Moore’s replacement.

Some of them have already moved on: Teddy Bridgewater (Jets), Mike Glennon (Cardinals), Chase Daniel (Bears), Josh McCown (Jets) and Ryan Fitzpatrick (Bucs).

Among the other veteran quarterbacks who would seem to fit the bill of backup: Brandon Weeden, Mark Sanchez, Geno Smith, Tom Savage, Derek Anderson, T.J. Yates, Drew Stanton and Matt Barkley.

In 2010, Dolphins owner Stephen Ross expressed admiration for Henne.
