The first was the addition of Erik Palmer-Brown to the list.  Sporting KC's new home grown player is making $35,125 as a base salary and $35,625 in guaranteed compensation.

The big one though is Graham Zusi and his new contract. Zusi's new contract sees him get a big jump in pay. .His base salary goes from $140,000 in the release earlier this year to $350,000 now. Guaranteed compensation goes from $173,812.50 to $383,250. Zusi is now the teams highest paid player according to the players union release. Although it lists Sporting designated player, Claudio Bieler's salary as only $200,000.
