FC Dallas declines options on four players, re-signs Kellyn Acosta

FC Dallas has announced their roster moves following a banner year.

Kevin Jairaj-USA TODAY Sports

Over the last couple of days, teams around the league have started making their off-season moves by declining and picking up options and getting a start to the 2016 campaign. Yesterday, we found out that Blas Perez will not be returning to FCD, despite him wanting to. Today the club announced the remaining of their roster moves heading into 2016.


  • Otis Earle
  • Danny Garcia
  • David Texeira
  • Michel
Otis Earle's situation isn't much of a surprise, giving his lack of playing time with the first team and even the USL side Arizona United. David Texeira is still an intriguing option to bring back. There's a good chance they're reworking his contract to make him a more affordable option.


  • Matt Hedges
  • Atiba Harris
  • Ryan Hollingshead
  • Zach Loyd
  • Je-Vaughn Watson
  • Rolando Escobar
  • Victor Ulloa
All of these are excellent and not that much of a surprise, but here's to hoping that Dallas will be able to retain Hollingshead, Ulloa and Hedges to long-term contracts in the near future.

Acosta Re-Signs

The best news out of all this is that Dallas was able to re-sign Homegrown Legend Kellyn Acosta. Terms of the deal have not been disclosed and probably never will. Let's just enjoy that we get more Kellyn for the foreseeable future.

Zimmerman Offer

The wording is a bit unclear at the moment, but it appears that Walker Zimmerman's Generation adidas contract has expired and the club has offered him a deal. Now it's on Walker to decide if he wants to sign or not. (If I am in the wrong, please feel free to let me know. The league mechanisms for signing players is still relatively new to me.)

What do you guys think? Should Tex be brought back for less? If so, at what price do you think he's worth? Did Dallas give up too quickly on Garcia? Who's pissed that Atiba Harris will be back for 2016? Who's still sad about Blas Perez?
