Report: Sounders have signed UW forward Darwin Jones to a homegrown player contract

In early December, University of Washington forward Darwin Jones told me he’d decided his future plans: He was going to begin his professional career with the Seattle Sounders.

“That’s going to be my route within the next few weeks,” said Jones, a Federal Way native and former Sounders academy player.

All that was left was for the two sides to iron out the specifics. It took a bit longer than Jones’ estimated timetable, but per Ives Galarcep, it appears they finally have.

The Sounders have no comment on the report at this time. More on this to come.
