Following the spring release of the 2021 player salaries, the MLSPA has released the fall update on Wednesday to give us a sense of how teams are spending. FC Dallas saw a couple of new updates to their 2021 salaries while losing Tanner Tessmann to a summer transfer to Italy.

Here is what FC Dallas is spending in 2021:

So the new updates here are the three additions to the roster in Caiser Gomes (loanee from North Texas SC), Szabolcs Schon, and Facundo Quignon. There shouldn’t be a big surprise with those three salaries as Gomes is making slightly above a roster minimum (likely due to his loan status) while Schon is coming in as part of the new U22 Initiative in MLS. Quignon’s salary is now the third-highest behind Franco Jara and Matt Hedges.

The other big thing to note here is the jump in Ricardo Pepi’s salary from earlier this year. Back in the middle of the summer, he signed a new contract with the club that saw his salary go from just a shade over $100k to $271k in this latest salary dump. Given how the new contract is likely to lay out, he’ll likely see an even larger jump from year to year the longer he stays with the club. But we know that is highly unlikely at this point.

Other notes:

  • While Jara was in the top ten overall in MLS for highest earners back in the spring, he is now out of the top 10 due to newcomer Luiz Araujo (Atlanta) cracking the top five.
  • FC Dallas’ overall spending saw them jump one spot in the league’s wage bill list to #16 with total compensation of almost $12 million.
  • The cost-per-point for the club is right around $430k. Likely good enough for a bottom-tier spot in the league in that department.
  • Expect a lot of wage shedding this winter from this group as several players are going to be either out of contact or have options on their contracts. We’ll dive more into that in the coming weeks, but something to keep an eye out for.
