The chart provides context.
The column with the "now" heading shows how many players each team is carrying on its active roster and injured reserve.
The "2010" column shows how many of those 227 players listed in the first column finished the 2010 season on the active list or IR.
The "2009" column shows how many of the 227 remain from the end of that season.
The Rams retain rights to eight of the players finishing the 2009 season on their active or IR lists. That is a league low. Seattle has the second-fewest with nine.
Congratulations, guys. You've made it ... for now.
