Brad Ring leaves the Portland Timbers for Indy Eleven

Alex Ladd

The 26-year-old never a dropped a point while on field with the Timbers.

One minute. That's all Brad Ring got with the Portland Timbers in 2013. The 26-year-old midfielder was acquired by the Timbers from San Jose Earthquakes on September 5 amid their worst spell of injuries and absences. He replaced Darlington Nagbe in injury time of Portland's 4-0 defeat of Toronto FC on September 7 and then that was it. Today, Ring was unveiled by new NASL side Indy Eleven, confirming that he did not accept the Timbers' bona fide offer that was extended in early December.

Ring, who will forever hold the Timbers' record for fewest minutes played in a career, can also claim he never lost a game he played for Portland. He also returns home, in a manner of speaking, after four years on the west coast in MLS. Though he is from Rockford, Illinois, Ring attended Indiana University and played all four years for the Hoosiers. Today's announcement, along with Mike Ambersley, who played against the Timbers in the second division with both Rochester Raging Rhinos (pre-name change) and AC St. Louis and also attended IU, took place at Assembly Hall in Bloomington, Indiana.
