[NASL 2014 COUNTDOWN]Atlanta Silverbacks technical director Eric Wynalda has added two more players he has followed in California for several years: defender Edgar Espinoza, who played on Wynalda's Cal FC in the 2012 Open Cup and is now with the PDL Los Angeles Misioneros, and midfielder Alex Harlley, nephew of Tottenham striker Emmanuel Adebayor, from the NPSL's Santa Clarita Storm.

"Don't let his smile fool you," said Wynalda. "Edgar is a defender that no one will enjoy playing against. I've been watching Edgar for several years now, and he is a player who was extremely instrumental in helping Cal FC qualify for the 2012 U.S. Open Cup. I'm glad we were able to bring him to Atlanta."

Harlley, a 6-foot-2 midfielder, is only 21, and spent time at JC power Yavapai College.

"I've put a lot of miles on my car going to watch Alex play, but he always made it worth the drive," Wynalda said. "He has really impressed me as a player, and he has a wonderful personality to go along with his game. I think he'll really embrace this opportunity with the Silverbacks."

Also signed was Janny Rivera, who has played for the Silverbacks' Reserves.
