Mauro Rosales posts his goodbye on Twitter

The Sounders have until 2 p.m. to re-sign its MLS Re-Entry Draft-eligible players before Thursday’s first stage. No such moves were expected, but Mauro Rosales looked to have ended those prospects with a couple tweets Wednesday.

Rosales leaves as the franchise’s co-leader in assists (tied with Fredy Montero at 34) and the team’s primary captain the past two seasons.

Here was coach Sigi Schmid on the team declining Rosales’ option: “It’s a situation obviously when we made an Ozzie a DP, we could only have three DPs. So you have to make a decision there when a player wants to continue to make that salary. It forces your hand.”
