The Fire have announced that midfielder Davis Paul has been waived. Non guaranteed MLS contracts can be released before July 1 giving teams maneuverability with their rosters and salary budget. Players on the roster after July 1 are guaranteed compensation for the remainder of 2011.
The release of Paul, who appeared in one match this season leaves the Fire with 27 players on the roster. Three below the maximum limit of 30 with one international spot available. It would seem that something is afoot as the opening of the July transfer window approaches.
