FC Dallas has agreed to new teams on a two-year contract with goalkeeper Jimmy Maurer. The new deal includes a club option for the 2024 season.
“It feels great. I’m super excited to commit my future here and be a part of this moving forward,” Maurer said. “I’ve really enjoyed being here. I am looking forward to the future and getting to work on the field even more.”
According to the MLSPA, Mauer was on a base contract of $158,125 on his old contract. FCD had picked up Maurer’s contract option for 2021 so more than likely he would have been a free agent this coming winter.
3rd Degree’s Take
Fantastic move, Maurer is one of the most consistent and reliable keepers in the league. Keeping him around for a few more years is a terrific decision. Hopefully, he got the raise he deserved too as ~$160k is low for a keeper of his caliber.
