Catching Up On Rapids News

Going back over the last couple of weeks to catch up on the Rapids news.

  • Mullan is officially retiring.  No surprise given the news we've heard this year about his knees.  Great player, and great career, he will be missed.
  • Rapids to be part of 2015 Desert Diamond Cup.  This is the annual preseason tournament in Tucson that the Rapids competed in this past year.
  • As we saw this weekend, Zat Knight was officially signed.  He is reportedly signed only for this season, with an option for next year.  That's the best way for the team to approach this.
  • Powers signs a contract extension, reportedly for 3 guaranteed years.  Great move by the team.
  • Brown, Hairston, and Serna called up for National Team duty this weekend.  Good for them and now that O'Neill is suspended he'll join them (though he'll still have to serve his suspension when he returns).  Won't make it easy to beat Chivas though.
