Dave Caldwell was on the chopping block last year but owner Shad Khan decided to give him one more shot. Here are the highlights:

  • When expectations fell way short, it wasn’t surprising that Khan fired Caldwell.
  • Caldwell was fired on Sunday after the team’s 10th consecutive loss. It’s certainly the beginning of a new direction.
  • Khan didn’t have any bad words for Caldwell. He said, “Dave was exceptionally committed” to the team but just couldn’t bring them to victory.
  • Their organization is headed for a new direction in 2021.
  • They’ll keep the current coach Doug Marrone and his staff for the rest of the season and start fresh for 2021.
  • While Caldwell chose some top-notch players either they haven’t been able to get their stride or injuries plagued them.
  • Caldwell signed Super Bowl 52 MVP Nick Foles to a four-year, $88 million deal that included $50.125 million guaranteed. However, Foles broke his collarbone in the season opener and even had to be benched down the line after he returned.
  • Nonetheless, he was able to build a solid team in 2017 and some of them are still there. They’re young and have a solid foundation they can carry on into the future.
