Real Salt Lake defender Ned Grabavoy will reportedly be part of the team for the next three years. Grabavoy signed a three-year deal, the last a club option Monday.
Grabavoy came to RSL after being released by San Jose in 2009. He scored the winning penalty kick on Nov. 14 of that year against the Chicago Fire to give RSL its first conference championship and first trip to the MLS Cup final.
"I couldnt be happier to have the opportunity to continue my career with Real Salt Lake," Grabavoy said. "This is one of the proudest moments of my career.
"I'm excited to find myself in a great situation for continued success. I want to thank ownership, management, and my coaching staff for not just showing a commitment to me, but doing everything possible to display a complete and successful product every season. I believe we have the right pieces in place to do some special things and hopefully bring another championship to our much deserving fans."
Grabavoy had battled injury in 2011. Financial details were not disclosed, but Grabavoy made $118,125.00 last season.
