D.C. United goalkeeper Bill Hamid has yet to play a minute of first-team soccer this season, but that hasn't prevented the team from showing a sign of good faith in its goalkeeper of the future.
Hamid and DCU agreed to a new contract on Thursday, one that will count against the team's salary cap as opposed to his original deal when he signed as the team's first Homegrown Player. Hamid played in eight league games last season, splitting starting duties with Troy Perkins before suffering a shoulder injury and undergoing surgery for a torn labrum.
He has appeared in reserve matches since being cleared by doctors to resume playing and is expected to contend for the starting job again once fully fit. Terms of his new deal were not disclosed.
