3/6/09: MLS 2009 Salaries- Crew Are Maxed Out



The Crew's total base salary cap stands at $2,357,130.50, that is $57,130.50 over the $2.3 million dollar MLS salary cap. However, the Crew has $100 K in allocation money from Seattle and possibly a little extra in allocation money on top of that. The $2,357,130 figure also doesn't include Crew rookie Alex Grendi who has signed a developmental contract with the Crew at either 12 or 18 K. Further, the total does not include the three other Crew developmental players that the team will eventually sign.

Developmentals:
$12,000 or $18,000 for Grendi
$12,000
$12,000
$12,000

$57,130.50+$48,000.00=$105,130.50. So, there goes the Seattle $100 K. No wonder the Crew are not looking for anyone else outside of the current squad.

Anyways, thank you Sigi and Seattle, without that $100 K the Crew might have had a real problem rounding out their lineup and still fitting themselves underneath the cap.
