  • Nico Colaluca, Trade

A trade came across the wire today that very few paid attention to until this evening.

The Colorado Rapids acquired Generation adidas defender Rob Valentino in a trade with the New England Revolution in exchange for Generation adidas midfielder Nico Colaluca.

Both clubs announced the swap today. Very little will come as a result of this. New England gets unloads a young defender that saw little time with the club while taking in a midfielder that saw a lot of the time in the old reserve league.

Who won the deal is anybody’s guess right now. I do think Colorado was good to get another young defender on the roster.
