Burgundy Headlines for Mar 14th…

A big void (pun intended) on the Rapids back line, but nothing that Bobby Burling shouldn’t be able to fill, literally. I expect we’ll see the big guy starting this weekend against MLS newbies, Minnesota United FC.

The signing of Da Fonte comes as a surprise but it sounds like a good one, that benefits not only the Rapids but Sacramento Republic FC as well. I think this move is to just simply add more experience to the back line. Da Fonte having played in USL with Sacramento and NY Red Bulls II and previously 3 seasons in the Portuguese third division. The soon to be 26 year old signs a 2 year deal with the Rapids.

Welcome to the club Mike Da Fonte!
