    Biography

    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.

    Very solid candidate. They have built a very good team.

    If we get him, do we put a roof on MetLife?

    Question WOODY EMBARRASSED TO FACE FANS/ REPORTERS ?

    WWW.NORTHJERSEY.COM
    =Comparisons to the Giants are almost too easy to make anymore, but when GM Jerry Reese stands up and says, “We don’t get paid here to finish 9-7,” the Jets once again look disjointed, disorganized and dysfunctional by contrast. Who can forget John Mara walking into the Giants’ press room three seasons ago, at the end of an 8-8 season he swore felt “a lot more like 2-14” after its promising 5-0 start? Mara shredded his team that day, calling “the status quo unacceptable” and demanding change.

    His team had won the Super Bowl two seasons earlier. And it would win one two seasons later.

    The Jets are still trading on the just-short glory of Ryan’s first two years, when successive trips to the AFC title game sure made it feel as if Johnson had found his winning formula. But so much has disintegrated since then, from bad draft choices to worse salary cap moves, from bungling quarterback controversies to a leaky, backbiting locker room. But rather than stand up and talk about his plan to right the listing ship, Johnson hid behind his green curtain, content to let a press release do the talking for him, content to let his players project the public face of disappointment.
