[NASL] They won't be playing in August, but the New York Cosmos have begun to stock up on players for their inaugural season in the NASL. Hunter Freeman, who spent six seasons in MLS and two in Norway, signed with the Cosmos instead of joining the New England Revolution, who had acquired his MLS rights in the 2012 Re-Entry Draft.

"He is a versatile and experienced defender who I am confident will do very well in the NASL," said Cosmos coach Gio Savarese. His attacking ability from the right-back position makes him a perfect fit for the Cosmos."

The former University of Virginia defender played for the Rapids, New York Red Bulls and Toronto FC before joining IK Start of the Norwegian Tippeligaen in 2008. Freeman made 51 appearances and scored two goals in the Tippeligaen between 2009 and 2010. He returned to MLS and played for the 2011 runner-up Houston Dynamo before returning to the Rapids.

"The chance to play in New York City with a team that has such a rich tradition made the decision easy for me," said Freeman. "I am excited to be a part of this club and help the Cosmos back to the top of American soccer."

The Cosmos have also signed former MLS players Kyle Reynish, Carlos Mendes and Stefan Dimitrov and and Spaniard Ayoze.

New York will skip the 2013 spring season but join the NASL for the fall campaign that kicks off in August. It will play at James M. Shuart Stadium on the campus of Hofstra University.
