- Brian McIntyre mentions that this move will save the Jaguars $3.7 million in cap space, which brings their total 2014 cap space to over $60 million.
- O’Halloran adds that this move was based on Nwaneri’s performance.
- Nwaneri’s agent, Jordan Woy, has confirmed the move.
As things stand right now, the Jaguars are without a starting guard, so this figures to be a position for them to target upgrades in either free agency or the draft.
Nwaneri, 29, had a base salary of $3.775 million to go along with a $1 million roster bonus this season.
Pro Football Focus has Nwaneri rated as the No. 34 guard in the league this past season and a decent pass-protector.
