                     === Caldwell to be new Jaguars GM ===
 
 Jacksonville,   FL  (Sports   Network)   -  The   Jacksonville  Jaguars   have
 reeled in David Caldwell as the club's new general manager.
 
 The  Florida  Times-Union reported on Tuesday  evening that the two sides have
 finalized  a  contract. Caldwell, who  previously served as director of player
 personnel  for the  Atlanta Falcons, will replace Gene Smith, who was fired on
 Dec. 31.
 
 According  to the paper, Caldwell was one of only four men interviewed by Jags
 owner  Shad Khan for  the post. The others were new Arizona GM Steve Keim, Tom
 Gamble from the 49ers, and Marc Ross of the New York Giants.
 
 Caldwell  leaves a Falcons club which finished with the best record in the NFC
 at 13-3 and won the NFC South. He will be tasked with turning around a Jaguars
 team  which  finished a franchise-worst  2-14 last  season and hasn't made the
 playoffs since 2007.
