Kansas City Chiefs backup QB Chad Henne announced on Instagram he is retiring from the NFL after winning Super Bowl 57 vs. the Philadelphia Eagles.

Henne has pretty much been a career backup and wasn’t with the team when the Chiefs won the Super Bowl back in 2019. At 37 years old, Henne goes out a champion after playing for the Chiefs, Dolphins and Jaguars over his career.

The Chiefs defeated the Eagles 38-35 in Super Bowl 57 on Sunday in Glendale, Arizona, at State Farm Stadium. Kansas City fell behind in the first half but rallied in the second thanks to a big performance from Patrick Mahomes, who was named Super Bowl MVP. Mahomes tweaked his ankle and it looked like Henne was maybe going to get in for a few snaps. Instead, Mahomes was fine and finished the game with three passing TDs.
