[MLS WAIVER DRAFT]Only three players were claimed in the MLS waiver draft Tuesday, but at least a few more of the players placed on waivers may find their way onto rosters.

D.C. United picked up defender Jeff Curtin, Houston claimed forward Kyle Brown, and Chicago took defender Brandon Prideaux. If a waived player is under contract, the team claiming him must honor the terms of that contract. If not, the parties are obligated to negotiate a new deal.

Prideaux, 31, a member of D.C. United's championship team in 2004, has played 206 games in nine seasons with Kansas City, United and Colorado. He was a member of the Seattle Sounders, which was then in the A-League, when the Wizards took him with the second pick in the 1999 Supplemental Draft.

Curtin, 24, was waived by Chicago after playing just three games during the last two seasons as a developmental player.

Brown, 24, played 12 games for the Revs in 2006, earning one assist, and last year scored two goals in eight games for Real Salt Lake.

Teams electing not to use the waiver draft to claim waived players, and perhaps thus be bound by a player's existing contract, may file requests for players with the league office, which will fill those requests on a first-come, first-served basis.

Jacob Thomas wasn't included, erroneously, on the list of waived players that appeared in Tuesday's edition. He was one of four players waived by Columbus.
