No Colorado players eligible for Waiver Draft, while Rapids pass on others

The Colorado Rapids have yet to announce any offseason player moves, unlike many other teams, however on Monday we learned two things.

First, the Rapids did not make any players available for the MLS Waiver Draft.

Second, the Rapids did not select any of the 28 players that were made available by other clubs for the draft, which was held Monday afternoon via conference call.

The League revealed the list of players available based on eligibility requirements set forth in MLS's Roster Rules & Regulations.

Of the available players, pool goalkeeper Brad Stuver was claimed by Columbus and Montreal's Paolo Del Piccolo was selected by New England.

The remaining players are now available to any MLS club on a first-come, first-serve basis. The Crew and Revolution will drop to the bottom of the selection order for future Waiver Drafts.

Colorado, FC Dallas, the Portland Timbers, and the LA Galaxy were the only teams that did not place a player on Waivers. MLS Cup 2013 finalists Real Salt Lake and Sporting KC were omitted.
