USA TODAY Sports

The Sounders signed the forward they plucked from the New England Revolution in the Re-Entry Draft.

The Seattle Sounders FC roster moves continued as forward Chad Barrett was signed, the club announced on Tuesday.

The 28-year-old Barrett was picked up in the Re-Entry Draft Stage 2 earlier in December with the 13th overall pick. Barrett appeared in 19 games for the New England Revolution last season, finishing with two goals and two assists.

Barrett is a nine-year MLS veteran moving onto his fifth MLS team. He played college soccer at UCLA where he led the team in assists his sophomore year. He signed a Generation Adidas contract with MLS and was drafted by the Chicago Fire with the third overall pick in the 2005 MLS Draft.

He has scored 44 goals and has 29 assists over his MLS career. Barrett spent some of his 2012 season on loan a Norwegian club and is two seasons away from scoring seven goals (2011 - LA Galaxy, 2010 - Toronto FC). Barrett has one cap with the USMNT in a World Cup Qualifier against Barbados in 2008.

For his part, Barrett sounds geniunely excited to join the rave green.

Per MLS policy, the terms of the contract were not disclosed.
