Trading Sean Johnson left the Fire with 12 contracted players eligible for Tuesday's Expansion Draft. All MLS clubs could protect 11 players from selection by Atlanta or Minnesota, and the Fire's eleven are:
Accam, Alvarez, Campbell, de Leeuw, Goossens, Kappelhof, Lampson, Meira, Polster, Solignac, Vincent
Arshakyan, Cocis, Gehrig, Harrington, LaBrocca, McLain, Morrell, Stephens, Ramos, Tham
Homegrown Players Collin Fernandez, Patrick Doody, Drew Conner, and Joey Calistri were exempt from eligibility.
Luis Solignac's option was declined but the Fire protected his rights. David Arshakyan, who is under contract, was left unprotected as was Michael Harrington.
