USA TODAY Sports

Merritt Paulson was up to his old tricks again and sent out a teasing tweet which suggested the Timbers were about so sign a new player. In the same tweet he also hinted at contract extensions for current Portland Timbers.

Yesterday Merritt Paulson was up to his old tricks again as he sent out a tweet suggesting that an annoucement about a contract extension. A lot of people speculating and hoping the announcement had to do with Diego Valeri. I hazard a different guess and got a response from MP.

Here is the sequence of the tweets:

I responded with this:

His answer was this:

It is safe to assume there will be multiple player extensions announced soon and at least one player signing. I also think that the response to my guess elicited a response because it was correct but it is pure speculation.
