D.C. United will head into Thursday's MLS Draft with one less need to address after signing one of its top defenders.
D.C. has signed right back Bryan Namoff to a new contract, sources told SBI on Tuesday. Terms of the deal were not available.
The signing, coupled with the signing of left back Mark Burch, will allow D.C. to focus on other areas with its two first-round picks, No. 6 and No. 7. Central defense is the club's biggest area of need and the club could move up in the draft in order to try and take Maryland's Omar Gonzalez, the top central defender in the draft.
What do you think of the news? Are you starting to feel better about D.C.'s chances of fielding a better defense in 2009? Can you see D.C. going after Gonzalez?
