D.C. United 2016 salaries released

New, 40 comments

Some surprises, good, bad or otherwise.

The MLS Player's Union released the list of player salaries as of May 15. Notable names over MLS include salaries for Tim Howard ($2,100,000 base compensation) and Jermaine Jones ($600,000) of the Colorado Rapids, recently acquired New England Revolution forward Kei Kamara ($1,000,000) and once almost-D.C. United now Orlando City midfielder Antonio Nocerino ($600,000)

So in terms of D.C. United, Luciano Acosta is on a base number of $327,272 while on loan from Boca Juniors. Goalkeeper Tally Hall, yet to play a game in Black-and-Red, has just over $150,000 in guaranteed compensation, while current starter Travis Worra makes a third of this total. The numbers, while revealing, aren't necessarily accurate; keep in mind a portion of Marcelo Sarvas' salary is being paid by the Rapids. Comparing to last September, Bill Hamid's salary has dropped, while Alvaro Saborio's number increased, and Fabian Espindola continues to list a salary that clearly doesn't reflect his status as the team's only Designated Player.

The list is as follows, with base salary on the left and guaranteed compensation on the right:
