Colorado Rapids pass on selecting players in Stage Two of Re-Entry Process

Eight players picked by five teams; others now available on a first come basis to all clubs

NEW YORK (Wednesday, Dec.18, 2013) – Major League Soccer today conducted Stage Two of the 2013 MLS Re-Entry Process, with the Colorado Rapids passing on selecting any of the 48 available players. (SEE FULL LIST)

D.C. United, the San Jose Earthquakes, and Seattle Sounders each took two players, while Vancouver and Toronto each took one player.

Drafting clubs will be required to make a genuine offer to the player within seven days. In the event that an agreement cannot be reached between the drafting club and the out-of-contract player, the drafting club will hold the right of first refusal for that player in MLS. 

Clubs were allowed to select their own players in Stage Two only after all other clubs had declined to select those players. No club selected their own player in this draft. Brian Mullan, Jamie Smith, and Stew Ceus were the available Rapids players.

Players not selected in either stage of the Re-Entry Process are available on a first come first served basis to all clubs. Last week, Colorado selected defender Marc Burch from Seattle in the first stage.
