David Caldwell is in his seventh year as the general manager of the Jaguars after being named to the post on January 8, 2013. A veteran of more than 20 years in the NFL, Caldwell spent five seasons (2008-12) with the Atlanta Falcons before joining the Jaguars. Previously with the Carolina Panthers and Indianapolis Colts, Caldwell was with teams that went to the playoffs in 13 of his first 17 NFL seasons in Carolina, Indianapolis and Atlanta. In 2017, the Jaguars made their first appearance in the postseason since the 2007 season and won the AFC South for the first time since Jacksonville joined the division in 2002. The team's trip to the AFC Championship was just the third in franchise history and the first since the 1999 season. Every player on the team's current roster was acquired during Caldwell's tenure with the team.
