The Colorado Rapids announced on Tuesday that one of the most important players in the history of the franchise will be sticking around. Drew Moor signed a contract extension, great news for a squad that has more problems on the defensive side of the ball than any other.
Moor has been one of the best players if not the best player consistently on the Rapids since he joined the squad via a trade with FC Dallas back in 2009. He has not only played solid ball but has kept himself away from injury and sloppy play -- in 2010 he played every minute of every game from the start of the year to the finish, only the third player in MLS history to do so.
From the official press release:
"I’m excited to sign a new contract with the Rapids," said Moor. "Over the last three years, Colorado has become my home and I have developed a great relationship with all the fans who come out to Dick’s Sporting Goods Park. I’m happy to stay with the Rapids and continue helping the team to future success."
The deals of the contract weren't disclosed as per usual with MLS, but Moor's salary from before of $230K yearly is probably remaining the same.
