3rd highest payroll in MLS. Not sure on the contract lengths on many of the players. This is the guaranteed compensation for 2021 season. Position is listed as shown by the MLSPA. Hopefully I didn't screw up any of the numbers.

Not sure if some of the cheap Canadian academy graduate contracts increase every year or not. I know they all don't count directly against the cap in the beginning. Might be the 2nd contract is where it starts to count.
To hit the salary cap many of these contracts are brought down by TAM, GAM, DP, Home Grown player, generation adidas, ect. MLS wizardry.
