[MLS] Two former U.S. national team players let go on the eve of the 2010 MLS season might be back to work shortly. Thursday's Houston-Real Salt Lake match could come too soon for the Dynamo to have the services of a key offseason signing ...

1. Busch might return to work

Jon Busch might not be out of work long. The 2008 MLS Goalie of the Year, dropped by the Chicago Fire a week ago in favor untested Andy Dykstra, could land at San Jose, where he'd push incumbent Joe Cannon for the starting job.

2. Noonan reunited with Schmid

Pat Noonan, another former U.S. national team player let go on the eve of the 2010 season, trained with the Seattle Sounders on Monday. If he signs with Seattle, he'd be reunited with Sigi Schmid, whom he played for at Columbus in 2008 after returning from Norway.

3. Palmer stuck in Kingston

Houston opens at home Thursday against Real Salt Lake (TV: ESPN2, live, 9 p.m. ET), which may been too soon for Jamaican Lovel Palmer to rejoin the team. Palmer was signed as a possible replacement for the departed Ricardo Clark at holding midfielder and returned home after a solid preseason to get his visa.
