Yannick Weber is likely to join this list soon.
You know what's common to all those players?

None of those are ever going to be considered, and never were core players. And let's face it, complementary players are bound to change teams more often than not. None of those players you listed are pieces that are particularly hard to replace on a team, each summer the UFA market is filled with those.

And guess what; here's something else that is common to all of these players;

None of those have ever won anything. It's no coincidence the teams giving them important roles are getting nowhere.
