Veteran goalkeeper Jon Busch, Designated Player Mauro Rosales, and former U.S. Men’s National Team forward Robbie Findley are just a few of the 62 players made available for the MLS Re-Entry Draft.

MLS released the list of players available for the MLS Re-Entry draft, which begins with the first stage on Friday at 3 p.m.. If a player is selected in the first stage, the club that selects them must exercise the player’s contract option or make them a “bona-fide” contract offer, offering them the same salary terms they were making last season.

Due to some high-salaries in contracts, most players go unselected in the first stage and move to the second stage on Dec. 18. The second stage allows selecting teams to change the terms of the player’s previous deal and negotiate with the player a new salary figure.

The Re-Entry Draft will have the same order as the MLS Waiver Draft, with the Montreal Impact having the first pick and New York City FC and Orlando City FC rounding out the final two spots in the list of 20 teams.

  1. If he has anything left in his legs, Sounders should pick up Riley. Decent price for a HUGE fan favorite. Great backup to Evans at RB. SEATTLE LOVES YOU JAMES!!!

    We’ll pass on everybody else.
