The Orlando Sentinel is reporting that the two sides agreed to a five-year deal that will allow free agency to players who are both over 28 years of age and have eight years of MLS experience. Salary increases will be capped for free agent players, as those making under $100,000 have a cap of a 125 percent increase of their prior salary, players making between $100-200,000 have a cap of 120 percent and players making more than $200,000 have a cap of 115 percent.

New CBA will include a raise of the minimum salary to $60,000, a figure expected to increase incrementally during the years of the deal. Finally, there will also be an immediate raise in the salary cap, although no specific figure has been released.

This years cap will be 3.72 million. Increasing 7% each year of the CBA. 2019 the cap will be 4,876,161.
Roster size of 28 players.
60k minimum for senior roster players.
Junior members making a bit less than the 60k.
lots more information in there too.

Dunivant and Foose are saying all the right things in that article imo.
