Contract term explainer:


INTL: International player roster spot


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. New contracts post CBA are now mutual options where player has also a say in the extension.


Notes:

**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


*** 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.
