Nwaneri had started 92 of 104 games for Jacksonville since the beginning of the 2008 season, and according to the Pro Football Focus metric, he was ranked as the 34th-best guard in the league (out of the 81 measured). But Nwaneri -- who was supposed to make $5.4 million in 2014 -- also was durable, playing every snap for the Jaguars last year.
And while the Jaguars -- who are now about $60 million under the salary cap -- likely will be in the market for a franchise quarterback with their No. 3 overall pick in the NFL draft, they've also got plenty of work to do to fill the offensive line.

That seems like a little bit of a problem, right?
