Roster Churn

You know what I said in my previous post about the roster churn being over now that we were done with preseason? Not so much.

The Rapids signed Kelly Gray and draft pick Scott Campbell today. Gray is a 7th year player who's played for the Fire and Earthquakes/1836/Dynamo. He'll give us still more cover on the pack line. Scott Campbell was our last pick in the SuperDraft, a midfielder out of North Carolina.

This gives us 2 goalkeepers (Plus the MLS Pool goalkeeper who trains with the Rapids), 10 defenders, 14 midfielders, and 4 strikers.

In order to make the roster limit requirment of 28 players, the Rapids placed Conor Casey and Mike Petke on the disabled list today due to their injuries. This means that they will be ineligible to play until May 10th. At that point, assuming they are healthy and nobody else is seriously injured, 2 Rapids will be out of a job.

Could one of them be Gargan? IIRC he's not a dev player this year.
