Sounders FC signs Chad Barrett

Barrett_Chad_13Chad Barrett tweeted Wednesday that he signed with the Sounders, so Thursday’s official announcement didn’t come as a surprise at all.

Really, it has been expected for a while after Seattle acquired the 28-year-old forward’s rights last month in the second stage of the MLS Re-Entry Draft.

Terms were not disclosed, per league and team rules, but expect it to be less than the $110,709.17 he made with New England last season.

Barrett, a nine-year MLS veteran, had two goals and two assists in 2013.

Here is some more bio information from the news release:

Barrett began his professional career with the Chicago Fire in 2005, and joined Toronto FC in 2008. He spent two seasons with the LA Galaxy (2011-12) before New England selected him in the 2012 Re-Entry Process. Overall, he has scored 44 goals with 29 assists in 211 career appearances. Barrett has one cap for the U.S. National Team and also participated for the United States at the youth level.
