Contract term explainer:


Free Agent: Player that has at least 6 years service to the league and contract is expired. To read full list of free agents: https://www.nwslsoccer.com/news/2023-nwsl-free-agents


Option year: When contract is expired, team which contract is held with can choose to extend that contract an additional season.


Notes:

*Delanie Sheehan's contract is unknown. What we could verify is that Delanie was "Brought back under multi year contract" as reported by Jersey Sporting news in 2022. Not sure if this means a year contract with an option year or a multi year contract. Will verify with club.


**After reaching arbitration the NWSLPA won their case and the free agents with option years are now full free agents. Read more here: https://www.nwslsoccer.com/news/independent-arbitrator-ruling-on-nwsl-free-agency


*** Victoria Pickett's Gotham FC contract is unknown. Victoria was on a 3 year contract with KC. Assuming that Gotham kept the same deal. Will verify with club.


**** Sabrina Flores status unknown. Was out of contract. Listed by Gotham FC as offered new contract as well as on roster. The Athletic stated "O'hara joins Sabrina Flores" as in they both signed contracts. Will verify with team.
