The New York Red Bulls announced their end of the year roster decisions following the conclusion of their 2022 MLS campaign. 

After finishing the regular season in fourth place with 53 points in 34 games, the team qualified to the playoffs to face FC Cincinnati in the first round. But the Red Bulls’ postseason campaign was short lived, losing 2-1 to Cincinnati. 

The team has since analyzed their current roster to make decisions ahead of the 2023 season.  

Overall, the Red Bulls have exercised options on nine players and declined the options on three, with one player out of contract. An additional 15 players are already under contract for next season.

The Red Bulls have exercised options on goalkeeper A.J. Marcucci, defenders Hassan Ndam, Dylan Nealis, and Matt Nocita, midfielders Wiki Carmona, Omir Fernandez, Cristian Cásseres, Jr., and Steven Sserwadda, and forward Jake LaCava.

The club declined options on midfielder Jesus Castellano and forwards Zach Ryan and Omar Sowe. Defender Kyle Duncan, midfielder Caden Clark and forward Elias Manoel loans will expire.

But captain Aaron Long is the one to watch. His contract expires at the end of the 2022 campaign, leaving his future with the Eastern Conference side at risk. The team has made it clear though that his fate with the Red Bulls will be decided after the World cup.
