The two signings represent a pair of massive coups for the league, bringing two of the USMNT's most influential players, each of whom started their professional careers in MLS, during the months leading up to the 2014 World Cup in Brazil.
USMNT defenders Clarence Goodson and Michael Parkhurst have also made MLS returns within that same timeframe. D.C. United forward Eddie Johnson is perhaps the poster boy for successfully throwing it back to MLS after revitalizing his career with a 2012 homecoming.
Talk over recent weeks lists Schalke midfielder Jermaine Jones as a potential prospect to land in MLS before the start of the 2014 season, and on Wednesday, Stoke City midfielder Maurice Edu's name began floating around with a reportedly imminent move back to MLS, where he started his pro career with Toronto FC in 2007.
