A name we haven’t heard of in a little while is back again for a fleeting moment. Taylor Peay spent all of 2017 playing for Real Monarchs, the MLS 2 side in USL for Real Salt Lake.

But despite leaving the Timbers in 2016, we still held his MLS rights, until today. Portland traded the MLS Right of First Refusal for Taylor Peay over to his USL side’s parent club: Real Salt Lake. In exchange, Portland gets a 3rd round draft pick in the upcoming 2018 Superdraft.

Today’s Press Release:
