UPDATE 12:25 p.m. — This post now includes Tuesday’s draft picks of Stefano Rijssel and Fabio Pereira.
I’ve been asked to come up with a post that tracks all the activity in this busy offseason. I’ll update this as we approach opening day.
NOTE: Corey Hertzog, whose rights were acquired in the Re-Entry Draft, did not come to terms with the Sounders. The forward is free to sign anywhere outside of MLS as a free agent (and he is reportedly set to train with Sweden’s Falkenbergs FF). Seattle retains his MLS rights.
