Jaguars | Don't want to do Hard Knocks

Tue, 25 Feb 2014 10:33:59 -0800

Jacksonville Jaguars general manager Dave Caldwell does not want his team participating in HBO's Hard Knocks training camp show. "That's a good question. Our reaction would be that we would try to defer," Caldwell said. "We take a lot of pride in our culture and we're very particular on who we bring into this organization. So we've been able to build a lot of trust from our coaching staff to our players and they know, our players know we have their best interests at heart. It's hard to build trust with cameras omnipresence," he said.

Jaguars | Will not force picking a quarterback

Wed, 19 Feb 2014 13:06:37 -0800

Jacksonville Jaguars general manager Dave Caldwell said if you try to force picking a quarterback at a certain point in a draft, you can make a mistake. "In today's day and age, if you can't get Peyton Manning or Matt Ryan, and they might not be available for the next 10 or 15 years, then you have to adapt and build the roster and do what's best for the organization," Caldwell said. "And if a quarterback presents itself later in the draft, you take and develop him. Having a franchise guy makes the world a lot easier, though. It can erase a lot of mistakes you make. But if you force it, you can screw it up. I don't know if we're going to find that guy, but I hope we do."

Jaguars | Won't draft QB in first two rounds

Sat, 08 Feb 2014 23:31:22 -0800

Jacksonville Jaguars general manager Dave Caldwell insists he will not take a quarterback in the first two rounds of the NFL Draft in May, with the only exception being if the quarterback is the best value on the board. He won't pass up a player he has ranked at a higher position. "If we're going to give into pressure (to take a quarterback high if they have other players rated higher), we're going to make the wrong decision,'' Caldwell said. "Our vision is to build a franchise that can sustain and win over a period of time. In that process, if a quarterback presents himself, we'll grab him.''

Jaguars | Mike Kafka has chance to win QB job

Thu, 13 Jun 2013 15:40:35 -0700

Jacksonville Jaguars general manager Dave Caldwell said Mike Kafka has "just as good an opportunity" to win the starting QB jon as Blaine Gabbert, Chad Henne or undrafted rookie Matt Scott. Caldwell had considered signing Kafka earlier in the offseason. The New England Patriots signed him but cut him when they signed Tim Tebow.

Fantasy Tip: The Jags' skills players won't be fun fantasy plays this year, and whoever wins this skirmish shouldn't be anything more than a desperation fantasy backup.

Jaguars | Justin Blackmon met with coach and front office

Mon, 13 May 2013 16:56:28 -0700

Jacksonville Jaguars WR Justin Blackmon has met with head coach Gus Bradley and general manager David Caldwell after getting suspended for the first four games of the 2013 season. Blackmon has been a student in the team's facility since the suspension, and the team still believes in him.

Fantasy Tip: It is a good sign for the team that Blackmon has spent so much time in the facility after the suspension was announced. Still, one has to think that any more off field issues could hurt the team's faith in him.

NFL | Is Charles Woodson receiving interest?

Wed, 27 Feb 2013 07:43:51 -0800

Free-agent CB Charles Woodson (Packers) may have difficulty landing with a new team this offseason, according to Jacksonville Jaguars general manager David Caldwell. "I think it will be tough," said Caldwell, who isn't interested in signing Woodson. "But it only takes one team that says, 'Hey, this is a big need for us. This is our year and he may give us a (lift).' He still has a little juice in his legs." An unnamed scout added he has concerns whether Woodson is a leader. "To me, he's got another year or two left in the tank, probably in a situational playing capacity as an inside player. I think he could start at safety, but you'd be worried a little bit. Safety is the last line of defense," the scout said. "The more people I talk to, he's a veteran presence, yes. But that leadership element? Maybe not."
