In what has been one of the busiest days for the Rapids since the end of last season, the Rapids today signed two of their 2016 Super Draft picks, goalkeeper Chris Froschauer (Ohio St.) and midfielder Emmanuel Appiah(Univ of Cincinnati).
Then late this afternoon, comes the announcement of the Rapids trade with the New England Revolution for Jermaine Jones. The Rapids trading away general allocation money and a first round pick in 2017. Jones will have to serve a 6 game suspension from last season, but still this is an instant upgrade to the midfield. Welcome to the team, Jermaine!

No I’m not saying this team makes the playoffs because of Jones alone, as there are a TON of variables that have to take place for that to happen. But you have to admit that we are much closer to that being at least a possibility.
