Well, we're still waiting to figure out if and when Martin Rivero is going to arrive for the Colorado Rapids, him being the most hyped move of the offseason so far for Colorado.

Steven Goff on twitter dropped a bit of a bombshell on Wednesday evening though, unrelated to our new #10. Apparently, the Rapids are looking at USMNT striker and former FC Dallas/Kansas City player Eddie Johnson.

Johnson has been lambasted for having a pretty ineffective career away from MLS since 2008, with failed stints in Fulham, Cardiff, Preston and others. Teams have been reportedly scouting him all offseason in MLS as he likely will want to get back home since that's the only league he's had any success in during his career.

Steven Goff on twitter said later in the day that the Rapids probably aren't going to end up with Johnson's services after all. I'm doubting that we're going to hear much complaining in that regard.
