MOST COMMENTED

[MLS]Toronto, which had three picks in last year's first round but none this year, wants to trade up so it can possibly nick Hermann Trophy winner and Canadian youth international Teal Bunbury (Akron); there aren't a lot of TFC players with enough trade value to balance out a top-shelf Generation adidas player unless it is willing to part with a good chunk of the allocation money it received for missing the playoffs.

New England declined the option on defender Chris Albright's contract and may trade him to Philadelphia, his birthplace. Albright played just one game last year before suffering a torn left lateral meniscus that kept him out of league action the rest of the season. He earned $176,000 in 2009.

Kevin Alston, selected 10th overall out of Indiana University in last year's draft, moved into Albright's right-back position and his excellent play stamped him as one of the league's best signings ($55,000 base salary, and guaranteed compensation of $104,000, including a Generation adidas bonus).
