Seattle Sounders Salaries Released: Fredy Montero Gets Big Raise; Kasey Keller Takes $50K Cut

New, comments

Fredy Montero will make almost $500,000 more in 2011 than he did in 2010, Kasey Keller will make about $50,000 less and Mauro Rosales is making the league minimum, at least according to salary data released on Saturday by the MLS Players Union. Among the other players to receive sizable raises over what they reportedly made last year were Osvaldo Alonso (more than doubled his salary to $140,000) and Nate Jaqua (received a roughly $50,000 bump and now makes $211,000). Leo Gonzalez also received a raise of about $40,000, bringing him to $110,000.

The Sounders have 12 players making more than $100,000. On the flip side, they also have 11 players making less than $50,000 in base pay.

League-wide, the highest paid non-Designated Player appears to be David Ferreira, who somehow is making $705,000 is guaranteed compensation despite not being a DP. Fabian Castillo, ironically Ferreira's FC Dallas teammate, is reportedly making $42,000 even though he is a DP.

It should be noted that Generation Adidas players(Michael Tetteh) don't count towards the cap, but that transfer fees do. So in cases like Castillo or Alvaro Fernandez they are DPs for different reasons than David Beckham or Thierry Henry. Also, per last week, theSounders have room for a DP and maybe a just below average salary player.
