The Portland Timbers are getting ready to kickoff their inaugural season, and they have added a veteran MLS midfielder to help their cause.
Portland acquired midfielder Jack Jewsbury from Sporting Kansas City in exchange for allocation money on Monday. Jewsbury joins a midfield that includes, among others, Jeremy Hall, Adam Moffat and recently-acquired Sal Zizzo.
Jewsbury, who has spent all of his eight MLS season with Kansas City, played in 29 regular season matches last year, starting in 17 and scoring two goals. In his entire career with Kansas City, Jewsbury played in 195 matches, scoring 15 goals and recording 21 assists.
What do you think of this trade? Think Kansas City will miss Jewsbury? See him having a big impact in Portland?
