HOW ACQUIRED: Traded from Houston on August 17, 2020.
McNamara had a great three year stretch with NYCFC before his fortunes dropped off in 2018. His long-range efforts will be a welcome sight in New England after a spell in Houston.
COLLEGE: Played four seasons at Brown University before enrolling at Clemson University in order to earn a master's degree. His team-high seven goals to go with eight assists helped lead the Tigers to an 11-7-3 record and berth in the 2013 NCAA Tournament.
