Toronto FC declined options on six players on Thursday who combined to make just 18 appearances last season.
Defenders Adrian Cann, Ty Harden, and Dicoy Williams, midfielder Oscar Cordon, and forwards Nicholas Lindsay and Keith Makubuya were the six players who had their options declined.
Cann played the most of the six players, starting eight of his 10 matches last season. He made 65 appearances over three seasons with Toronto.
Harden made five appearances last season and 58 in all competitions over three years, and Williams played in 13 matches with TFC, but just two last season.
Makubuya played just one game last season, while the other two players, Cordon and Lindsay, did not appear in an MLS match last year.
Toronto FC managed just 23 points - easily the worst in MLS - with a 5-21-8 record last season. The point total was the lowest-ever for TFC, which totaled 25 points in four fewer matches as an expansion team in 2007.
