At this point I am not sure it is even good RB II signing. The guy is not a spring chicken - he is 26 years old, already in his prime, and so far failed in Columbus two years ago and was a back-up for one of the shittiest defenses in the MLS history this year. Now sure how anyone can get excited over this. There is a reason why Orlando traded him for peanuts in spite of low salary not taking international slot. We basically panicked after just losing Escobar, Collin, and Ndam, and got a warm body in. Not a terrible move as we didn't spend much, but there is a very low likelihood of being productive here either. Certainly not "godsend" as some here have grossly overreacted.
Yeah yeah and DC United cut Kemar Lawrence.
Possible reasons why Orlando moved him for peanuts:
1. They suck at player evaluation and integrating talent
2. They decided to go scorched earth after such an awful season.
3. He did not match the tactics they plan on embracing going forward.
4. There was some sort of mismatch in his personality and that of the locker room/coaching staff.
5. He is bad at soccer.
We'll see. I've watched Barcelona and Bayern superstars absolutely fail here and I've watched English third-tier players succeed. I'm not expecting anything special from him, but you're going to have to come up with something better than "he played on a bad team and therefore he is bad."
