The Jacksonville Jaguars are in need of a general manager.
The Jacksonville Jaguars announced they have parted ways with general manager David Caldwell after their 27-25 loss to the Cleveland Browns in Week 12. This doesn’t come as a surprise as the team has had just one winning season in his tenure with the team and the dearth of playmakers on the roster is one big reason why.
Under Caldwell, the Jaguars had top 5 draft picks from 2013 to 2017, and none of them remain with the team. Moreover, he had a chance to find a franchise quarterback but got players such as Blake Bortles and Nick Foles instead.
In Caldwell’s defense, he selected linebacker Myles Jack in 2016 and his last two drafts were two of the best ones he had in his tenure as the team’s general manager. Nevertheless, his hits were not enough to overcome his misses, and his lack of results made it difficult for the team to continue employing him.
Now, the Jaguars will start looking for candidates to fill their general manager vacancy (if they haven’t already). The job should be a desirable one as the team is set to have $83.99 million in cap space and ten draft selections, two of them in the first two rounds) in 2021.
Here are four possible replacements for the Jaguars general manager job.
