Caldwell, Jags agree in principle

AP

Well, that didn’t take long.

Less than an hour after FOX’s Jay Glazer reported that the only thing standing in the way of the Jaguars hiring Dave Caldwell to be their next G.M. was working out a deal, the two sides have worked out a deal.

Caldwell’s agent, Brian Ayrault, announced on Twitter than Caldwell and the Jaguars and owner Shahid Khan have reached an agreement in principle.

We’re told that a deal was in place before Caldwell told the Jets that he would be removing his name from consideration for the G.M. vacancy in New York.

Caldwell had interviewed with the Jaguars three times before scheduling a second interview with the Jets.  The move prompted scuttlebutt in league circles that the Jags and Caldwell had reached a financial impasse.

If so, the impasse has now become whatever the opposite of an impasse is.
