Updated MLS salaries released, D.C. United includes no surprises

In the usual September update there aren't any changes to speak of, Black and Red wise.

The MLS Player's Union released their September list of salaries Tuesday afternoon, and includes the likes of Didier Drogba, Herculez Gomez and other midseason arrivals that may not have made the list from July. Feel free to click through and check it out.

As far as D.C. United goes? Well, comparing this list to the one released in July, there really isn't any new revelations to speak of. Kofi Opare's extension was announced on the day this list was generated (September 15), and other than that, and Michael Seaton coming off the books as a result of his trade to the Portland Timbers, there are no changes to speak of. The list of D.C. players follows, with base salary on the left and guaranteed compensation on the right:

A couple of quick editorial notes, first on Twitter:

Second, I encourage folks to check out Bryan Girkins' salary dashboard on tableau, which includes salary trends by club and the league itself, and includes the historical stuff too. Definitely worth diving into.

Other than that, what else on the list catches your eye?
