The Jacksonville Jaguars are set to hire David Caldwell to be their new general manager, according to several reports. Fox Sports' Jay Glazer first reported the two sides were negotiating and others have since reported that a deal has been agreed upon.

Caldwell is the former vice president of player personnel for the Atlanta Falcons and he comes to Jacksonville with quite a project on his hands. The Jaguars went 2-14 in 2012, tying the Kansas City Chiefs for the worst record in the league.

Caldwell has a successful past in helping to find top talent. He has been in the NFL for 15 years -- 10 of those in Indianapolis -- and he worked under Bill Polian, helping the Colts win Super Bowl XLI.
