According to reports on NFL.com, the Jaguars can move forward in 2013.
Jacksonville, after meeting with four different candidates, have announced the hiring of David Caldwell as it's new general manager. Caldwell, who was the Director of Player Personnel for the Atlanta Falcons, now will be given control of decisions which could include the retention of Jaguars head coach Mike Mularkey.
Mularkey and Caldwell were both on the Falcons staff last season.
It is rumored that Caldwell may want to make changes in who is leading the team from the sidelines, with San Francisco 49ers offensive coordinator Greg Roman being the one possible name linked to the position.
In a statement from the NFL.com story, team owner Shad Khan stated, "We got our man. I have a lot of faith in David Caldwell and I can assure our fans that the best days for the Jacksonville Jaguars are in front of us."
The Jaguars finished 2-14 this past season and hold the second overall pick in the 2013 Draft. The Jaguars finished last in sacks in the NFL and 31st in overall offense, leaving many questions about how the team will move forward.
Here is what Caldwell's addition to the Jaguars staff really means.
