Not every former Buckeye was able to make NFL rosters ahead of this season.

In total, 10 former Ohio State players were cut from their respective NFL teams this weekend as teams had until Saturday afternoon to announce their final 53-man roster heading into the season.

The cuts included rookies like J.T. Barrett, Chris Worley and Tracy Sprinkle, trying to make their first NFL rosters, but also a few veterans like John Simon and Braxton Miller who've always made 53-man rosters in the past.

These 10 players will now become free agents and hope to be picked up by a team later as the season progresses.

Barrett was added to the Saints' practice squad on Sunday. The Bengals, Titans and 49ers have also re-signed Worley, Webb and Powell, respectively, to their practice squads.

In addition to the cuts, rookie offensive lineman Jamarco Jones was placed on the Seattle Seahaws' injured reserve and also will not be on a 53-man roster, though he was not cut and was not expected to be.
