After three interviews with the Jaguars for their vacant G.M. position, Falcons director of player personnel Dave Caldwell agreed to take a second interview with the Jets. It sparked rumblings that Caldwell was looking for more money from the Jaguars than the Jaguars and owner Shahid Khan were willing to pay.
Now, the Jaguars and owner Shahid Khan apparently are willing to pay.
Jay Glazer of FOX reports that the Jaguars have “tabbed” Caldwell as the team’s next G.M., but that the two sides still have to work out a deal.
Which means they haven’t worked out a deal. Which means that, in theory, they may not.
Either way, Caldwell has given up his biggest piece of leverage. Per Glazer, Caldwell has told the Jets that he’s out of their search.
