Revs add two players in re-entry draft
The Revolution picked two veteran MLS players in Friday’s Stage 2 of the 2012 re-entry process, choosing LA Galaxy forward Chad Barrett in the first round (fourth overall pick) and Colorado Rapids defender Hunter Freeman in the second round (23rd overall selection).
“With Hunter and Chad, we’ve chosen two players who have a lot of MLS experience,” General Manager Michael Burns said. “Should they decide to continue playing in MLS, we believe they can have a significant impact on our squad. We also expect their professionalism and leadership will have a positive impact in our locker room.”
Freeman, 27, has played in Colorado (2005-06, 2012), New York (2007-08), Toronto (2008) and Houston (2011), and has made 126 appearances with 110 starts.
Barrett, 27, has scored 42 goals and added 27 assists in 192 career appearances with Chicago (2005-08), Toronto (2008-2010) and LA (2011-12).
