WHAT’S NEXT?
WPS players weighing their options

Philadelphia Independence midfielder Nikki Krzysik, along with the other non-national team players in WPS, is looking for a way to keep soccer in her life without a pro league to play in. For the members of the U.S. Women's National Team, there was almost no time to dwell on the fact that Women's Professional Soccer suspended its 2012 season. Just days after winning the CONCACAF Olympic Qualifying Tournament and booking passage to the 2012 Summer Games in London, the national teamers were called into another camp.

But players who are not part of the national team pool are now having to decide what to do now that playing pro soccer is not an option.

Women's Professional Soccer is in discussion to settle a lawsuit brought by magicJack owner Dan Borislow, but terms are far from finalized, according to league sources.
