Revs Sign Videira: Boswell Ponders Exit

Looks like patience has paid off for the New England Revolution. When taking Mike Videira (pictured above) in the 2nd round of the 2008 MLS Superdraft, the Revs knew the Duke midfielder planned on trying to make it in Europe. Try he did, but after one injury-riddled season with Hamilton of the Scottish Premier League, Videira has signed with the league and as a result of being drafted by them, the Revs. Although this is a good signing, I still think the Revs need to make some bigger signings in order to place themselves back among the MLS elite.

Also, looks like Bobby Boswell might be taking off to Europe, as Antalyaspor of the Turkish Super Lig look to be pushing for his signature. According to Soccer 365, Boswell is currently in Turkey getting to know his potential new club. Houston knew that Boswell might take off after his solid campaign with the Dynamo last season, and as a result swung a trade to bring in the young CB Julius James from Toronto FC. If Boswell leaves, you might hear his Dynamo teammates saying some things reminiscent of his old DC United teammates.
