Negotiations can still go on through December 6th. We now know which players who had option years have been declined, making the only remaining unknown whether or not any of the reserve squad players are out of contract.

Brian Perk is probably the only surprise amongst those who didn't have their options picked up, as it leaves the Galaxy without a goalkeeper at the moment. Christian Wilhelmsson was rumored to possibly be deemed too expensive, but that situation may become clearer soon

Around the league, old friend Juan Pablo Angel was made eligible by Chivas as he's out of contract. Danny Califf, Ike Opara, Kevin Hartman and Connor Casey are just a few of the players available in the Re-Entry draft that are known commodities in MLS.
