PLL Free Agency Tracker: Updates on League's Biggest Signings

PHOTO COURTESY OF PREMIER LACROSSE LEAGUE

Will Manny signed a two-year contract with the Whipsnakes.


The Premier Lacrosse League’s first-ever free agency period opened Monday, March 6,, and a handful of landscape-shifting signings have already been made.

In the days and weeks to follow, come back here for free agency updates. We’ll update the table below with every free agent signing and provide context on the major moves and storylines as they develop.

Free agent updates will be made once the league and/or teams officially announce transactions.

All updates are Eastern time.

UPDATE: MARCH 8, 3 P.M.

PLL Championship Series standout Jake Carraway impressed with the Atlas a few weeks ago during his audition for a new club, and the former Georgetown attackman has now signed with the league champion Waterdogs. He joins Michael Sowers, Ethan Walker and Kieran McArdle, who re-signed earlier this week, on the attack.

UPDATE: MARCH 8, 11 A.M.

Two Penn State history makers are joining forces. Grant Ament, one of the primary returners to the Archers after the departures of Marcus Holman and Will Manny, will be dishing assists to NCAA goals record holder Mac O'Keefe through 2024. The Archers also finalized a contract with Latrell Harris on Tuesday, bringing him back for two seasons.

UPDATE: MARCH 7, 9 A.M.

The Cannons and the Archers will look quite a bit different this summer. The Archers made headlines yesterday on the opening day of free agency for what head coach Chris Bates lost, as the Bunk Bed Boys have gone their separate ways.

Will Manny signed a two-year deal with the Whipsnakes, and Marcus Holman signed a one-year deal with the Cannons, joining forces with his father, Brian, who was just hired as the team’s head coach.

Holman also added Matt Kavanagh to the attack, signing the former Redwoods star to a one-year contract. The Cannons offense suddenly looks quite lethal. Adding Manny and Kavanagh to Lyle Thompson and Asher Nolting on attack, not to mention the team’s offensive-minded middies, is a real upgrade.
