The Chicago Fire's makeover continues.

The team agreed to deals with trialists Michael Videira and Orr Barouch on Thursday, adding two more names to the fold in a season full of acquisitions. The Fire now has 25 players on its senior roster.

Videira, a former standout at Duke University, was a second-round pick of the New England Revolution in the 2008 MLS SuperDraft. He tried his hand in the Scottish Premier League before returning to New England and ultimately joining the new-defunct AC St. Louis last season.

Barouch, a 19-year-old striker, is a former member of the UANL Tigres reserves. He impressed during the preseason, with the highlight being a four-goal performance in a friendly against the New York Red Bulls.

What do you think about the moves? Do you see either player, or both, being a big part of the upcoming season?
