  • Albert Edward. Huh.
    Drafted by in 2014 by Colorado, not signed. Wilmington picked him up.

    6 ft tall, 23 years old.

    Didn't see which defensive position he's played, though.

    I'm curious to know how he got brought along for the trip.

  • In reply to BrianC.:

    Left back.

  • The Fire have officially announced that first round draft pick Matt Polster has signed a contract.

    That brings the total of "signed" players up to 25.

  • I think Songo'o had some quality to him when he played for Portland. Outside wing/mid if I remember correctly.

  • In reply to KChance:

    Correct. Decent squad player.

  • Gonzalo Segares has officially retired as a player.
