Tampa Bay Rowdies Sign Anthony Wallace

Doug Pensinger

Wally has been freed, and is heading to the NASL.

As early as the 2013 off-season, it seemed that Anthony Wallace was right in the mix for a starting job with the Rapids. Unfortunately, the emergence of Chris Klute meant that the left back spot was locked down for the future, and Wally couldn't seem to find his way into the first team in any kind of stint except for a short second-half substitute role. He did have a few decent run outs in those sub appearances, but nothing much.

It looks like the Rapids have finally parted ways with the former MLS Cup-winning left back. He has gone to the Tampa Bay Rowdies of the NASL, the same spot where former Rapids fullback Eddie Ababio went. (Since two straight NASL champions have had former Rapids on the squad, this is a good move for Tampa in their hopes for the NASL Championship in 2014, clearly.) He signed for a 1-year deal which will keep him in Tampa at least through the 2014 season.

With Wallace leaving, this leaves Marvell Wynne, Brian Mullan and Drew Moor as the only starters from the 2010 MLS Cup Championship left on the team. (Matt Pickens too, but that's going to change any day now... right?)
