@AdamSchefter: Falcons director of player personnel Dave Caldwell is scheduled to interview today a second time with the #Jetsfor GM job.


His drafting is terrible compared to Gamble. This makes no sense.

Interesting. The local radio stations here in Jax said that Caldwell has his 3rd interview today and his by far the favorite for the Jax job. 3rd interviews are typically dotting the I's and crossing the T's.

I wouldn't assume too much out of this. Yes, he is the first person to have a second interview, but that could have just as much to do with the fact that he was also the first person to have any interview. Obviously the Jets must be interested to even bother, but I wouldn't say that makes him who they already want to hire, considering there hasn't even really been enough time to bring back any of the other candidates. I would have to think there would be at least one other candidate brought back for a second interview, otherwise why even bother, but I suppose you never know.

By day he's the (not so) mild-mannered Bleedin Green, but by night...

It seems as if the Jets search for a new general manager has taken a turn.  It was widely reported that San Francisco 49ers director of player personnel Tom Gamble was going to replace Mike Tannenbaum as the team’s GM.  It was assumed Gamble would become GM after reports surfaced that he canceled a second interview with the Jacksonville Jaguars for their GM job.  Gamble to the Jets does not look as defiant as previously thought because he is still interviewing with other organizations.

The Jets did interview New York Giants director of college scouting Marc Ross on Monday for the GM position but it was wide thought this was done just to satisfy the NFL’s “Rooney Rule” which requires teams to interview a minority candidate for certain positions within the organization and Gamble would be named GM soon after.

According to ESPN’s Adam Schefter the Jets have scheduled a second interview with Atlanta Falcons director of player personnel David Caldwell today for their GM position:

With owner Woody Johnson and head coach Rex Ryan scheduled to meet the media at 11 this morning it leads one to believe they do not have Gamble nor any other GM candidate on board as of yet.

As we hear it, both teams want Caldwell. But one league source says that Caldwell and the Jaguars had a financial gap that couldn’t be bridged, which has prompted Caldwell to explore more seriously the opportunity in New York.
And the opportunity in New York has arisen for Caldwell in part because, as we hear it, Tom Gamble’s interview with the Jets didn’t go well.

David Caldwell enters his first season as the Falcons Director of Player Personnel in 2012. He will oversee both the college and pro scouting efforts and work closely with Falcons General Manager Thomas Dimitroff. Caldwell will also play a day-to-day role in the analysis and evaluation of the Falcons current roster while aiding in the research on how to acquire future free agents. Prior to being promoted to Director of Player Personnel, he spent the last four seasons with the Falcons as the Director of College Scouting overseeing Atlanta’s college area and regional scouts. He also assimilated the information he received and presented it to Dimitroff with a goal of making the NFL Draft as effective as possible. Caldwell was also responsible for scouting the top talent in the country. Caldwell has served in the NFL for 15 years, 10 of which came with the Indianapolis Colts. From 2006-07, Caldwell was the Western Regional Scout with Indianapolis covering major college football conferences, including the Pac- 10, Big 10 and Big 12. Coming from a successful Colts franchise that claimed a victory in Super Bowl XLI against the Chicago Bears, Caldwell was part of a scouting team that accounted for multiple starters and Pro Bowl players. In 1998, he got his start with Indianapolis, serving as an Area Scout and remained in that role for the following seven seasons. Caldwell covered the Midwest and West Coast regions. In 1996, Caldwell broke into the NFL with the Carolina Panthers as a Scouting Assistant where he spent two seasons. He served as a liaison between the college scouting director and multiple area scouts while focusing on draft preparations.Caldwell is a graduate of John Carroll University, earning a Bachelor’s degree in Finance/Business Administration.He was a two-year letterman as an outside linebacker helping the Blue Streaks to an Ohio Athletic Conference title in 1994. A native of Buffalo, New York, Caldwell and his wife, Joelle, have one son, David Michael II.

Looks like we are getting a Polian guy no matter what. Both Gamble and Caldwell are from Polian-tree.

I am sure this meeting will help Caldwell's ability to get more money from the Jaguars.

After that press conference suspect we are looking at internal candidates only. Ross and Gamble are only interviewing with the Jes to either get better deals with their old teams or elsewhere.

That press conference could be the worst debacle for this franchise since Bellicheat fleeing to Foxboro. Woody Johnson has hitched hsi franchise to a moron named Rex Ryan.

I think JETS are just interviewing Gamble again to find out how much interest Jax has in trading for Tebow!

Is it customary for teams to send a private jet to get the GM candidate in for an interview ?

Last night Woody's private jet was spotted at the nearest airport to the Falcons facility. So they brought Caldwell in on a private jet!

Don't worry bud, he was just using us for negotiating leverage. He's overqualified for our GM position
