A versatile defender who can also play in the midfield, Talley played for Kansas City (2002-03), Dallas (2004-2005), and Real Salt Lake (2006-2008) before joining Chivas USA.

2006: Posted career-highs after starting in all 30 appearances and logging 2,618 minute played in his first season with RSL, and tied for second on squad and doubled previous career-best with eight assists. Notched his first- ever two-assist game on May 13 at the Galaxy, helping RSL to a 3-0 win and its first-ever road victory.

2005: Recorded three assists in 20 games (14 starts), and started FCD's first eight games before suffering fractured left ribs on May 18 against Colorado.

2004: Started 19 of 23 matches in his first season with Dallas, and registered his only point of season with a game-winning assist on July 24 against D.C. United.

2003: Started the season as a defensive midfielder before moving to Kansas City's backline, making a total of 20 appearances (13 starts). Missed just four games in June and July after suffering a fractured left orbital bone after receiving an elbow from Carlos Ruiz.

2002: Appeared in 24 matches (19 starts) in his first season in KC, starting the season as a substitute and finishing as a mainstay on the Wizards back line.

1998: Was United's only selection out of the 1998 College Draft, and made his MLS debut in the season opener on March 15 at Miami.
