FC Dallas made a couple moves this week and last, so I thought the Roster Dance was worth an update.
Last updated: 2/25/2011
Senior Roster (18 to 20)
MLS rosters are expanding to 30. Players 1 to 20 are on the senior roster and have to fit in the salary cap. (MLS teams may carry only 18 players on this senior roster if they wish)
FCD has 8 international slots in 2010 with 6 currently filled.
Players occupying roster spots 1-24 will earn at least $42,000 in 2011.
Off-Budget Roster (10)
Roster Spots 21 to 30. Generation adidas, developmental players, and home grown. Players 24 and under that don't count on the salary cap. MLS teams can have a maximum of 10 off-budget players.
Players occupying roster spots 25-30 will earn at least $32,600 in 2011.
Anyone connected, rumored, tried out, waived, training invited, or signed as a short term player.
