Ex-AGF midfielder Benny Feilhaber signed with MLS last week, but he had yet to actually discover his club thanks to the complex MLS roster rules. Chivas USA had the first opportunity to claim him; they passed, citing a desire to preserve salary cap space. Philadelphia Union then passed as well. This meant that Feilhaber was available for the New England Revolution, who chose to claim him.
The Revs, however, are still weighing trade offers for Feilhaber.
If Feilhaber does wind up with New England, he would become the second US international on the current Revs roster, joining Matt Reis (two caps during the January camps of 2006 and 2007).
