The LA Galaxy announced today that the club has agreed to terms on new contracts with Colin Clark, Brian Perk, and Mike Magee. Clark was picked up in the re-entry draft, with Perk and Magee signing new contracts to stay with the Galaxy. It'll be Magee's fifth season with the Galaxy and Perk's fourth.
Let's update the roster chart now, to see where we are with offseason signings. Once we get a full sense of the senior roster we'll move on to a depth chart, but for now we're looking at sixteen players I'd say for sure are on the senior roster. I expect Tommy Meyer to jump to the senior roster with the playing time he got last year, but there are possibly three more spots still to be filled on the senior roster and two on the reserve roster.
With Josh Saunders considered unlikely (and William Hesmer in the same boat) Juninho is probably the only person known to be negotiating with the Galaxy that will get a contract for 2013. The Galaxy could leave spot 18 and 19 open, or we might still see a flashy Designated Player signing before the month is over.
At any rate, we're getting closer and closer to 2013 training camp, and then there's still the SuperDraft to go. I could see the Galaxy signing their top two draft picks to fill out the reserve roster, but I don't expect much more than that. Gyasi Zardes and Oscar Sorto are the future more than anything the Galaxy could find in the draft.
