The New England Revolution claimed midfielder Shalrie Joseph
, a four-time MLS Best XI selection with the
club, in the Waiver Draft, paving the way for his return to the club after an absence of 20 months.
Joseph, 35, signed with the Revolution ahead of the 2003 season after playing his
college ball at St. John's. He played nine and a half seasons in New England until he was traded to Chivas USA in August 2012.
He was traded to Seattle in February 2013, but the
Sounders waived him earlier this year after he made 10 regular-season and two postseason appearances last year.
Joseph has made a Revolution-club record 261 appearances. He has
scored 37 goals (to rank fourth in the club’s records) and 34 assists (to rank third in the club’s records) in New England.
