Dave Caldwell

Senior Personnel Director/Advisor to the General Manager


Dave Caldwell, who enters his third season with the Philadelphia Eagles, was named a senior personnel director/advisor to the general manager during the 2022 offseason.

A scouting veteran of 27 years, Caldwell originally joined the Eagles as a personnel executive in 2021, following an eight-year stint (2013-20) as the general manager of the Jacksonville Jaguars.

During his time with the Jaguars, Caldwell selected more players in the NFL Draft that earned Pro Bowl honors than any other general manager in franchise history. He also built a roster that finished 10-6, won the AFC South title, and advanced to the AFC Championship Game in 2017.

Prior to the Jaguars, Caldwell was a part of teams that made the playoffs in 13 of his first 17 NFL seasons – Atlanta Falcons (2008-12), Indianapolis Colts (1998-2007) and Carolina Panthers (1996-97).

In Caldwell's five years with the Falcons, Atlanta appeared in four postseasons and was the only NFC team to record five straight winning campaigns. During the 2012 season, Caldwell served as the director of player personnel and oversaw college and pro scouting under Falcons general manager Thomas Dimitroff. He spent his first four years as the Falcons' director of college scouting (2008-11), managing the club's college area and regional scouts.

Caldwell spent 10 years as an area scout with the Colts working under general manager Bill Polian. He also helped build the roster that claimed Super Bowl XLI in 2007. Caldwell was the Western regional scout for his final two seasons after scouting the Midwest and West Coast areas during his first eight years in Indianapolis.
