The writing was on the wall as the New England Revolution added midfielders after the 2012 season, but it was still bit of a head-turning development to see the Revs part ways with midfielder Benny Feilhaber.
New England declined to pick up the option on Feilhaber’s contract, with sources telling SBI that Feilhaber’s large contract option make it unlikely that he returns to MLS in 2013.
The Revs crowded midfield includes Kelyn Rowe, Juan Toja, Lee Nguyen, Diego Fagundez and recently-acquired Andy Dorman.
Feilhaber endured a disappointing 2012 season with the Revs, finishing with one goal and two assists in 29 matches.
What’s next for the 27-year-old playmaker? A move back to Europe seems like the most likely scenario, though there is an outside chance he could stay in MLS if he is willing to take a sizable pay cut.
