A look at Sounders FC’s roster following the signing of Blair Gavin

Seattle Sounders FC LogoPosted below is a look at Sounders FC’s roster following Wednesday’s signing of midfielder Blair Gavin.

Currently 29 players are under contract, though goalkeeper Josh Ford is on the disabled list, which opens up another spot. Steve Zakuani is also on the DL, but he’s closer to a return, despite not participating much in Wednesday’s practice.

Yes, there are six goalkeepers around.

Rookie Will Bates has been practicing as a right back, which is why he moves back. Several players like Clint Dempsey, Lamar Neagle and David Estrada can be listed as both a forward or midfielder, so that’s inconsequential.

Changes can be made up until the Sept. 13 roster freeze.
