Rapids (Finally) Sign Neeskens

Talks about John Neeskens, son of famed Dutch player Johan Neeskens, started just as preseason was ending but the Rapids made it official today, signing the 20-year old defender to a contract.  Despite his Dutch heritage he was born in Tulsa and will not take an international spot.  Neeskens can play either outside back spot as well as playing outside or holding mid.

With the signing the Rapids are up to 28 of a possible 30 roster spots, with 7 of 8 international slots filled.  No other signings are rumored at this time, but with the recent addition of 2 defenders we may see a move being made.
