Bryan Acosta is the longest tenure player on the list, entering his third year with the club. He is the mostly likely to acquire a green card in the near future, as the rest of the players are only entering their second or first year with the club.
Szabolcs Schon, the new winger that will arrive in a few months, will be taking FC Dallas' 9th international spot which was available after the departure of Thiago Santos. The trade with Toronto has raised some eyebrows with many wondering if this is a sign that Dallas will bring in another players in either the MLS Window or the upcoming Summer Window.
