Career Summary

HOW ACQUIRED: Signed as a free agent on March 3, 2016. Signed a multi-year contract extension on August 21, 2019. Re-signed on Jan. 19, 2021

Turner started the 2018 preseason third on Brad Friedel's depth chart. He started the regular season as No. 1 for the Revs and held that spot for the remainder of the year. Turner was a key part of the Revolution's successful 2020 season, which saw them make a run to the Eastern Conference Final in the Audi MLS Cup Playoffs. Turner had seven MLS clean sheets in all competitions, and had the fifth-most saves of MLS goalkeepers in 2020 with 68 saves. The performances earned him a nomination for last year's Goalkeeper of the Year, and he finished second in the vote behind the Philadelphia Union's Andre Blake. He was also named the Revolution's MVP in 2020.
