Sounders pass in first stage of Re-Entry Draft, Chicago takes Maicon Santos in lone pick

MLS Logo.jpgThe first stage of the MLS Re-Entry Draft was held via a leaguewide conference call on Friday afternoon, and it didn’t last long.

All 19 teams passed except for the Chicago Fire, which selected former D.C. United forward Maicon Santos.

The second stage in the draft — which sees more action since teams can negotiate new contracts with selected players — will take place on another conference call at noon on Dec. 14.

Until then, Sounders FC can negotiate new deals with its two unselected players, goalkeeper Andrew Weber and midfielder/defender Mike Seamon, but they aren’t expected to return from what I’ve heard.

Here are the draft results:

First round

1. Toronto FC — Pass

2. Chivas USA — Pass

3. Portland Timbers — Pass

4. New England Revolution — Pass

5. Philadelphia Union — Pass

6. Colorado Rapids — Pass

7. FC Dallas — Pass

8. Montreal Impact — Pass

9. Columbus Crew — Pass

10. Vancouver Whitecaps FC — Pass

11. Chicago Fire — Maicon Santos

12. Real Salt Lake — Pass

13. New York Red Bulls — Pass

14. Sporting Kansas City — Pass

15. San Jose Earthquakes — Pass

16. Seattle Sounders FC — Pass

17. D.C. United — Pass

18. Houston Dynamo — Pass

19. LA Galaxy — Pass

Second round

1. Chicago Fire — Pass
