Unlike several MLS teams, Real Salt Lake experienced a quiet Stage 2 of the MLS Re-Entry Draft on Monday. RSL didn’t pick anyone from the pool of available players, nor were any of the team’s three players selected by MLS teams.
RSL did not pick up options for forward Nelson Gonzalez, defender Rauwshan McKenzie and midfielder Blake Wagner.
Former RSL forward and MLS’ all-time leading scorer Jeff Cunningham also finds himself without a team.
MLS champions L.A. Galaxy selected four new players and will to try and re-sign two of their own as they look to defend their MLS Cup championship in 2012.
All teams who selected players in the draft on Monday now have seven days to make an offer to each player taken. All players who were not taken in the draft are now available to be negotiated with on a first-come, first-serve basis.
