The Seattle Sounders made the long-expected signing of Dylan Remick official on Friday. The left back was a second-round pick out of Brown and has apparently impressed Sounders coaches.
"I've been very happy with Dylan," Sounders head coach Sigi Schmid said in a team release. "He is very good athletically, and he has the ability to play any position across the backline. He's a good passer and he's improving every day, and he's definitely someone that we think we can build on for the future."
Assuming the Sounders also sign Djimi Traore as they've been hinting at doing soon, that gives them 28 players under contract. If the Sounders are able to sign a new Designated Player, that leaves just one open spot. Among the players believed to be in competition for those final spots are Ashani Fairclough, Philip Lund and Travis Bowen. The Sounders could also choose to leave those roster spots open and receive $35,000 for each.
