For several rookies and other young prospects throughout the NFL, Saturday was a big day. The 90-to-53 roster cut-down day saw several deserving players earn their right to play on an NFL roster. 

As of right now, we already know the intitial list of Washington Redskins that will be suiting up in the Burgandy and Gold for 2017. There are 10 rookies on the squad along with several newcomers that worked their way onto the team or were just acquired in the off-season.

However, not every prospect is so fortunate. There will be 37 players that suited up for Washington during training camp and the pre-season that will have their NFL dreams halted momentarily. 

Across the entire league, that leaves 1,184 players without a job. 

Here are the players cut by the Redskins and did not make the 53-man active roster.

DL A.J. Francis
DL Brandon Banks
TE E.J. Bibbs

WR Robert Davis
TE Manasseh Garner

Their hopes are not over yet, all of the players are elligible to be picked up, a majority must be done through waivers, before the Week 1 roster deadline on Tuesday. Which means at the same time, not all NFL players who made a 53-man roster on Saturday are safe. 

After the waiver period, some of these listed players will find their way onto the 10-man practice squad to be announced next week.
