Waiver drafts don’t often see the most action, and Monday’s proved no exception.

The Sounders, along with most teams, declined to select any of the 28 players made available. The only picks made were Columbus taking pool goalkeeper Brad Stuver, who had trained with the team this season, and New England taking midfielder Paolo DelPiccolo, who just completed his rookie season with Montreal.

The rest of the 26 become free agents, and that group includes Danish forward Philip Lund, who didn’t have much of an impact in his first year with the Sounders. Lund (above) made just one substitute appearance for 16 minutes in April, though he did score in preseason and followed it up with a pretty sweet jig (at about the 1:15 mark in this video).

Also a free agent is Doug Herrick, a Seattle native, was the other pool goalkeeper in MLS this season. He spent all year training with the Sounders and served on a bench a few times.

Here are the other free agents (former teams in parentheses):

Daniel Antunez (Chivas USA), Marvin Iraheta (Chivas USA), Patrick McLain (Chivas USA), Paolo Tornaghi (Chicago), Drew Beckie (Columbus), Aaron Horton (Columbus), Kyle Hyland (Columbus), Matias Sanchez (Columbus), Lionard Pajoy (D.C. United), Alam Syamsir (D.C. United), Alex Dixon (Houston), Maximiliano Rodriguez (Montreal), David Carney (New York), Matt Horth (New England), Gabe Latigue (New England), Bilal Duckett (New England), Don Anding (Philadelphia), Greg Jordan (Philadelphia), Kleberson (Philadelphia), Oka Nikolov (Philadelphia), Marcus Tracy (San Jose), Danny Koevermans (Toronto), Michael Thomas (Toronto), Greg Klazura (Vancouver).
