Dave Caldwell’s history with first-round picks should be in question
With the Jacksonville Jaguars parting ways with Dante Fowler Jr., it’s safe to say he’s another case of the team’s struggles to hit on first-round picks. In fact, with the fourth-year pass rusher now off the team, only four of the six first-round selections Dave Caldwell has made since becoming the team’s general manager remain on the team. And when evaluating those four, it still isn’t pretty.
What can Jaguars fans expect out of Landry Jones?
Earlier today, the Jacksonville Jaguars announced that they signed former Pittsburgh Steelers quarterback Landry Jones to the active roster.

A herculean effort in the final eight games by the entire 53-man roster will be crucial for this team, led by head coach Doug Marrone, to make a charge to the postseason. The Jaguars are down, but not out.
