Once a Sounder and now a Sounder again the target forward is Seattle's sixth Washington native on the club.

The Kent raised former Sounder is now a member of Seattle Sounders FC as the club announced the eight year pro (five in MLS) is now part of the MLS club. Cam Weaver played for the USL Sounders in 2006 and tied for the league lead in goals scored with 18. The past five seasons he spent with the Houston Dynamo (a handful of games with the '09 Earthquakes) and scored 13 MLS goals as a rotational player.

Weaver is a classic American target forward whose 6'4" height contributes in dead ball situations while in run-of-play provides hold-up action.

"We are happy to bring Cam back home and love what he brings us in terms of experience and success in MLS," said Sporting Director Chris Henderson in the club release. "He is dangerous in front of goal and competes for every ball. His character fits very well in our group."

I'm a Northwest kid at heart,even though I haven't been a part of it all this so far, I just feel proud that this whole area has embraced the sport and the team.


Weaver joined Seattle's training camp
just prior to the squad leaving for Charleston. He started one preseason match and appeared in three others totally 110 minutes. He is likely to be a deep bench player and veteran leadership for the Reserves.

He played two college seasons with Seattle University. In 2004 that team won the title and went undefeated.

The move leaves Sounders FC with two open roster spots, one of which is for an international player. Kevin Parsemain and John Arroyo remained in camp as of Tuesday.
