In italics, but not bolded: Former players who had signed a professional contract with an MLS team, but never made a league appearance for the team.

(Note: If a player born in one country has represented another country on their youth team, but has not played for that country's youth team in the past two years, and has not been capped for that country's senior team, then they are listed with their country of birth.)
