Galaxy grabs Angel in busy MLS Re-Entry Draft

If you thought Wednesday's MLS Re-Entry Draft would be boring, you thought wrong.

MLS teams were extremely busy in the second phase of the MLS Re-Entry Draft, with eight players being taken. Juan Pablo Angel was the biggest name among the selections, being taken by Bruce Arena and the Los Angeles Galaxy. Arena was New York's head coach when Angel first signed with the Red Bulls.

The Galaxy moved up in the Re-Entry Draft order by trading with the Houston Dynamo to move up to the fifth pick. When Philadelphia passed on taking Angel, it cleared the way for Arena to take the forward he helped bring to MLS from England.

D.C. United made Josh Wolff the first player taken in the Re-Entry Draft and has reportedly already signed Wolff to a new contract.

Here are Wednesday's Re-Entry Draft Picks:

2010 MLS Re-Entry Draft (Part Two)

D.C. United- Josh Wolff

Chivas USA- Jimmy Conrad

New England Revolution- Ryan Cochrane

Los Angeles Galaxy- Juan Pablo Angel

Chicago Fire- Cory Gibbs

Sporting KC- Frankie Hejduk

Seattle Sounders- Chris Seitz

Columbus Crew- Jeff Cunningham

Los Angeles Galaxy- Luke Sassano

Colorado Rapids- Tyrone Marshall

New England Revolution- Fred

Teams must negotiate new contracts with the players chosen in Wednesday's Re-Entry Draft, meaning they don't become a part of their teams until a new deal is reached. D.C. United has reportedly already come to terms with Wolff.
