There haven’t been too many drastic changes to Sounders FC’s training camp roster since it opened Jan. 25, but here is an update following the acquisition of Marco Pappa, who has already begun practicing with the team.
Twenty-eight players are under contract. Among those unsigned are three draft picks and eight trialists.
As a side note, Brad Evans and DeAndre Yedlin are set to rejoin the team Thursday following duty with the U.S. national team. I’ve moved some players around positionally following Wednesday’s game, but guys like Lamar Neagle, David Estrada and Tristan Bowen, for example, could be either at forward or midfield.
