New England Revolution bring back club legend Shalrie Joseph after Tuesday's Waiver Draft

FOXBOROUGH, Mass. – The New England Revolution claimed and added to their roster midfielder and club legend Shalrie Joseph in Tuesday's Waiver Draft.

Per league and club policy, contract details were not released. 

Joseph, 35, re-joins his original MLS club after spending the last year-and-a-half with Chivas USA and Seattle Sounders FC. Originally drafted by the Revolution in 2002 out of St. John’s, Joseph signed with the team ahead of the 2003 season and played nine-and-a-half seasons in Foxborough until he was traded to Chivas in August 2012.

After playing the remainder of the 2012 season with the Goats, the former Grenada international was traded to Seattle in February 2013. Seattle waived him earlier this year after he made 10 regular-season and two postseason appearances last season.

Joseph has made 283 career appearances in MLS – including a Revolution record 261 appearances. He has scored 40 career goals and added 35 career assists in the regular season, including 37 goals (fourth in club history) and 34 assists (third in club history) in New England.

He was a finalist for the 2009 MLS Most Valuable Player award, was a four-time MLS Best XI selection and an eight-time MLS All-Star selection.
