Scott Olmos-US PRESSWIRE
Negotiations between Portland and Songo'o may have failed.
Over the last few months there have been little bits of information which have surfaced concerning Songo'o and Portland's desire to rework his current contract. Confirmation of the negotiations came when Songo'o was absent from training for the first two days and the only explanation given was:
Then to add to all of that there was this possible goodbye tweet from Songo'o:
It looks like I came to PDX for no reason. I wanted to put my cleats on, but it wasn't up to me. Some people forget easily. #AncoraImparo— franck songo (@franckck) January 23, 2013
We still have no confirmation from the team other than they what they told William during the first two days of preseason trainings. The adage that "(insert sport) is a business" most assuredly applies in this situation.
If Songo'o does not return this will free up one international roster spot and some cap room.
What do you think? Disappointed to see Franck go?
