ESPN's Adam Caplan reports the Cowboys are expected to sign free agent G Uche Nwaneri.
Nwaneri, 30, was cut by the Jaguars in March. He's flirted with the Titans and Bengals since. In Dallas, Nwaneri would simply compete for a roster spot on what appears to be one of the better offensive lines in the league. Nwaneri brings plenty of experience, having started 92 games since 2007.

ESPN's Adam Caplan reports "2-3 teams" are already showing interest in free agent RG Uche Nwaneri.
Nwaneri was released by the Jaguars Tuesday. Players that are cut from teams are free to sign with another club at any time and don't have to wait until March 11.

Jaguars released RG Uche Nwaneri.
Nwaneri, 30 later this month, started all 16 games last season and graded out as Pro Football Focus' No. 16 right guard. He's spent his entire seven-year career with the Jaguars since being a fifth-round pick in 2007 and has started 92 games. His release saves the Jaguars $3.705 million, leaving Jacksonville with over $60 million in cap space. The Jaguars now need a starting right guard, left guard, and center. Left tackle Luke Joeckel is the only locked in starter.

In addition to a knee scope, Jaguars RG Uche Nwaneri is recovering from a stem-cell procedure on his troublesome knee.
Dr. James Andrews performed the routine arthroscopy, and two weeks later Nwaneri had stem cells removed from his hip and injected into the knee. Nwaneri played through a meniscus tear and torn cartilage in the knee last season. The U.S. Food and Drug Administration has filed a lawsuit against the stem-cell procedure (called "Regenexx") and contends it's a public health risk.
