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.
Thank you to the entire @SoundersFC organization for an unforgettable 4 years! Will cherish the memories! #EBFG— dylan remick (@dylanremick15) December 16, 2016
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.
