Dublin manager Pat Gilroy has opted to streamline his squad with the start of the Leinster Senior Football Championship almost a week away.
Former DCU Sigerson Cup winning captain Paddy Andrews and Kilmacud Crokes clubman Pat Burke have both been omitted from the Dublin panel.
Gilroy's men are preparing for a Leinster SFC quarter-final tie against either Laois or Longford at Croke Park on Sunday, June 5. Laois and Longford will meet in Portlaoise on Sunday week.
Andrews was also dropped from the squad twelve months ago before returning to action with Dublin later in the summer.
This year the St Brigid's clubman featured as a substitute in all eight of Dublin's Allianz Football League games, but he will have to work his way back in Gilroy's Championship plans.
Other players who have been dropped from the squad are Alan Hubbard, Darren Daly and Dean Kelly.
Hubbard featured in Dublin's opening league win over Armagh at the Athletic Grounds but has failed to land a starting role since that February encounter.
Daly, Kelly and Burke all featured in the Division 1 final defeat to Cork at Croke Park last month.
It has been reported that Gilroy has axed 15 players in total, with the slimmed down squad set to face Parnells of London in a challenge game this weekend.
