Jaguars Releasing Starting Guard Uche Nwaneri

Ron Chenoy-USA TODAY Sports

The Jaguars are cutting one of their starting guards, and with Mike Pollak becoming a free agent, Uche Nwaneri could be someone to watch for if the Bengals want to bolster their depth there.

The Cincinnati Bengals are set to watch offensive tackles Dennis Rolland and Anthony Collins and guard Mike Pollak hit the open market when free agency opens next week. With Clint Boling also rehabbing from a torn ACL, Cincinnati needs to add at least one quality lineman in free agency who's capable of opening the season as a starter if Boling isn't ready.

While the easy thing to do would be re-signing Pollak, who started five games last year and finished with a +6.2 grade from Pro Football Focus. That may lead to another team signing him to be a full-time starter, whereas in Cincinnati, he cannot be assured that.

One player who just hit the open market that the Bengals may kick the tires on is Jacksonville Jaguars guard Uche Nwaneri:

As Rapoport stated, there will be plenty of quality guards to choose from this offseason for teams in need of depth at that position. Nwaneri finished the 2013 season with a respectable -0.3 grade by PFF, which ranked him as the No. 27 guard out of 60 eligible players who played in at least 50% of their team's snaps.
