Add the Colorado Rapids to the list of MLS teams Eddie Johnson has been linked with since his career in Europe went cold.
Back in August, it appeared Johnson was signing with MLS, only for that to sputter before gaining any real momentum. Then it looked like he was preparing to join DaMarcus Beasley at Puebla in Mexico, but that never materialized either.
Today, the Washington Post's Steven Goff tweeted that he was hearing the Rapids were in discussions to bring the former Dallas and Kansas City striker back to MLS. Based on all the false alarms, only time will tell whether Johnson find his way back to the United States, but this is certainly one worth watching.
Hearing the Colorado Rapids are in talks concerning well-traveled USA striker Eddie Johnson. Might have more details today. #mls— Steven Goff (@SoccerInsider) February 15, 2012
