Currently, Designated Players Sebastian Ferreira and Teenage Hadebe are the highest paid players on the team. Captain Tim Parker is the third player on the current roster making a million dollars this season. New signings Zeca and Thiago come in at $259k and $370k respectively. Mateo Bajamich still shows on the Dynamo payroll since he is out on loan. There is a purchase option in his loan, so he could be removed from the list in the future.
