The Seattle Sounders have reacquired goalkeeper Bryan Meredith in the first stage of Friday’s Re-Entry Draft. Meredith is coming out of three seasons with the San Jose Earthquakes where he did not play any regular-season minutes. Prior to San Jose, Meredith spend two years with the Sounders and played in 10 matches, recording three shutouts. He joins god-like (see THE SAVE) Stefan Frei and backup Tyler Miller. Since Charlie Lyon’s contract was not picked up, Meredith could play for S2 and be the back-up back-up to Frei.
Three other Sounders did not have their options picked up besides Lyon: Michael Farfan, Damion Lowe, and Dylan Remick. So far, Remick has been the only player to be selected in this re-entry process, by the Houston Dynamo. Remick, who was the Sounders Humanitarian of the Year in 2015, spent four seasons with the Sounders.
Remick logged 537 minutes in the 2016 season over 11 games played, but much of his time here was interrupted by injury. Remick missed a large chunk of the end of this season with a concussion he suffered in training.
