Thanks to Karyn at WPS for noting that the WPS site has now posted some partial lists of players who have had their options exercised for next season. http://www.stumbleupon.com/s/#239rXZ/www.womensprosoccer.com/Home/news/transactions-09.aspx/ The Athletica players mentioned are Aluko, Fletcher, Logterman, Loyden, and Weber. We'll know more on Wednesday when much of this becomes final. I am assuming that some of the bigger name players (Daniela, Chalupny, Ellertson, and Solo) have multi-year contracts. Either that or most Athletica fans will be in a panic come Thursday. Out of the 18 full roster players at the end of the season, 5 options exercised, 2 lost in expansion draft, leaving 11 that we don't have definitive news on yet... Chalupny, Cross, Daniela, Ellertson, McNeill, Solo, Stoia, Tancredi, Walsh, Welsh, and Woznuk. Also, once we get an idea about who other team's free agents are, we can discuss more fully who we would like to sign. It looks like Cristiane is going to be a free agent for Chicago (although we don't know 100% for sure). Athletica needs a scorer and with Barcellos as coach, I would think that was at least an outside possibility.
