Timbers Tid Bits: Roster Locked Edition

New, 6 comments

Today, at 5:00 PM EST each MLS team's roster will be officially locked. That means no trading with other MLS teams, no signing free agents. Nothing. The squad club's have after this evening will be the ones they take to the play-offs (if they make it). It's actually kind of interesting that we haven't seen more movements. Typically during this time, teams are frantically signing whoever they can get. This year though, everybody is either content with who they have or teams are choosing instead to begin planning for next season...

We'll see if anything happens today, but just a word to the wise, I wouldn't expect anything from the Timbers.

Enjoy your morning news!
