Uche Nwaneri, Ex-Jacksonville Jaguars Player Dies At 38 Years
The former Jacksonville Jaguars player, Uche Nwaneri, one of the team’s mainstays on the offensive line for seven seasons, is dead. According to reports, he passed away in the early hours of Friday at his wife’s home in West Lafayette, Ind., at the age of 38.
According to a report in the West Lafayette Journal & Courier, which had cited West Lafayette police and Tippecanoe County Coroner Carrie Costello, Nwaneri had been found unresponsive in his wife’s home at about 1 a.m. Preliminary reports and autopsy have indicated that he suffered a heart attack.
Nwaneri had been living in Atlanta, where he had business interests, and was visiting his wife when the unfortunate incident happened.
Nwaneri had been the Jaguars’ fifth-round pick from Purdue in the 2007 draft. He eventually started 76 consecutive games through the 2013 season before he was released in March 2014. He was then picked up by the Dallas Cowboys but was waived at the final roster cuts of the preseason.
