Carroll has, indeed, signed on the dotted line. I'm hearing he will make at least $120,000 this season. Of course, we won't know the official numbers until the salary list leaks out in a few months. Meantime, Carroll is awaiting word from the USSF as to whether he will be called in for the next U.S. training camp leading up to the Mexico friendly.
Troy Perkins is getting closer to a new deal that will pay him substantially more than the 30K he earned last season. But Bobby Boswell has so far declined new offers, which means he would make about the same amount the next two seasons. If he does not sign a new deal extending his contract, he would become a free agent after the 2008 season and, presumably, explore European opportunities.
Elsewhere, United should know next week whether Jay Nolly will actually play for DC this season. Otherwise, they are faced with having two young backup goalies behind Perkins. A trade is always possible for an experienced backup. Come to think of it, RSL was looking to deal Rimando, who is competing with Garlick and super rookie Seitz for playing time. Rimando has still not re-signed with MLS.....Hmmmmm......
*Andy Metcalf, who was waived after the 2006 season, has resurfaced with Atlanta in the USL.
*Good news for those poverty-striken developmental players. Looks like their salaries will be $12,900 this season, a $1,200 increase.
*Juicy rumors on the Howard U. coaching search: Shaka Hislop, Philip Gyau and Jimmy Banks could become candidates. Or not. We'll see...
