Trib: Waibel looking at three free agents

Who could RSL be looking to in free agency?

Matt Montgomery

Real Salt Lake is looking toward discussions with three free agents, according to a report from Salt Lake Tribune reporter Chris Kamrani.

"The way we're trying to balance out our acquisitions this offseason, based on experience, based on game-to-game impact, we've evaluated it and we think there's three guys out there that we need to have a conversation with," Waibel said. "Hopefully we can attract them, but free agency is free agency. Every guy has a different need and a different desire when they enter into free agency. Sometimes it's strictly financial, sometimes it's quality of life, sometimes it's a balance. We'll have those conversations in the next week."

It’s not yet clear who those players are, but Major League Soccer has put together a list of players available for free agency. There’s an interactive table below you can browse for ideas on who that could be — certainly, it’s probably none of the current RSL players listed.
