Sounders decline options on Boss, Graham, Jaqua, Noonan

The Sounders have declined contract options on goalkeeper Terry Boss, defender Taylor Graham, forward/midfielder Pat Noonan and forward Nate Jaqua, making them eligible for the MLS Re-Entry Draft on Dec. 5 and Dec. 12.

Boss, according to his Facebook page, has indicated that he will retire due to his concussion history.

Graham, Noonan and Jaqua have likely played their last games in Sounders uniforms, but can still re-sign with Seattle through Friday at a lower salary. In the next couple days, players can also be traded or opt out of the draft.

Here’s where the players stood regarding salary/guaranteed compensation upon the last update from the players’ union: Boss ($42,000/$44,500), Graham ($60,638), Jaqua ($140,004), Noonan ($48,000).
