The New York Red Bulls' forward corps just got a little deeper.

The Red Bulls acquired Kenny Cooper from the Portland Timbers on Wednesday in exchange for a 2013 first round MLS SuperDraft pick and allocation money. Cooper joins the Red Bulls after a return season to MLS that saw him score eight goals and have two assists in 34 league games.

The move may come as a surprise given that the Red Bulls currently have forwards Thierry Henry, Luke Rodgers and Juan Agudelo on their roster, but it could indicate that Agudelo may soon be leaving the club via a transfer.

What do you think of New York picking up Cooper? Like the trade? What do you think will happen to Agudelo?
