  • Incoming, Outgoing, Player Movement, Player Signings

A few of you have asked for this yet again, so I will deliver on it since it is a slow news day and updating this took very little time.

Only a few new moves since last week’s update. As always feel free to comment below (or email) any mistakes or corrections that need to be made to this. Remember its in-season movement only, I got a few questions last time about players that weren’t on this list and that was because they signed before the season kicked off. (Edit: also there are a few rookies that didn’t report to their teams until summer, they are not included since they were picked up before the season in the SuperDraft/Supplemental Draft)

    Man, you keep good track of things. One thing though: Burse is back with FC dallas, which is why the Timbers got Knighton from NE.

    Ray Burse is from Louisville, about 2 hours from where I live so I'm always interested in his career.
