Breaking Down the 10 Biggest Names on the Roster Bubble
Seth Wenig/Associated Press
Mario Manningham helped the New York Giants win a Super Bowl, but that might not help earn a spot on their 2014 roster.

It’s the time of the summer where players on NFL roster bubbles, such as Minnesota Vikings quarterback Christian Ponder and New York Giants wide receiver Mario Manningham, should be feeling anxious about their futures with their current franchises.

On Aug. 26, after every team has played their Week 3 preseason games, rosters throughout the league will be cut from 90 players down to 75. Just four days later, every team will have to trim its active roster down to the 53-man regular-season limit.

As a result, every team around the league is facing tough decisions on which players are worth keeping and which players have to be shown the door. In some cases, the players who are handed their pink slips might have made big names for themselves in the league or someone who the team has made a significant investment in. 

It’s no certainty that any of the following 10 players will be released. Some might make the cut, others might end up on the trade block, but none of them should be sitting too comfortably in their current locations.
