ExtraTime Radio: Eddie Johnson on USMNT January camp and what's next at DC United

Steady Eddie

The US national team is on the cusp of its first match of 2014 on Saturday in Los Angeles, and there's plenty to prove for most of the players in camp. The guys call up striker Eddie Johnson to talk about the camp so far and what's been a busy offseason for him after a highly publicized move from Seattle to D.C. United. What does his future hold at DC and what does he think of booming contracts for his fellow USMNTers?

The guys also discuss this weekend's Super Bowl with Seattle writer Mike Gastineau, who describes how soccer fans helped get the Seahawks a new home more than a decade ago, and which club rules the town now.

There's also plenty to talk about concerning Maurice Edu, Jermaine Jones, Marco Pappa and which 1980s'-era movie Simon should watch now after he trashed the Eddie Murphy classic Trading Places on the last show.
