The NFL’s Management Council voted, in 2012, to increase the offseason roster limit from 80 players to 90, according to league spokesman Greg Aiello.

The new expanded rosters include active and inactive players, members of the practice squad, exempt and reserve-list players, unsigned draft choices and franchise free agents.

By the time the bulk of free agency has run its course, the draft is in the books and undrafted free agents have been signed, most teams have pared down their rosters, with the majority of the easiest cuts from the year before. But there is still more that can be done prior to training camp.

The expanded rosters allow teams to stash a player or two they might hope make it back from injury or are able to hold off obsolescence for one more season. It doesn’t always happen that way, however.

Here are 10 dead-weight players currently on an NFL roster that teams should cut.
