Joe Nasco Loaned To Atlanta Silverbacks

Ron Chenoy-USA TODAY Sports

Joe Nasco has returned on loan to his former team.

Joe Nasco, having not seen a minute of time so far this MLS season, has been loaned back to his original team, the Atlanta Silverbacks.

With the team in need of new goalkeepers after the release of Steward Ceus and Matt Pickens, the Rapids made a move to bring in two new faces between the sticks during the off-season in Joe Nasco and John Berner. Nasco, as the veteran of the two and a guy who played for an NASL finalist in Atlanta and made the league's Best XI, was expected to take the back-up job behind Clint Irwin right off the bat.

Things didn't work out that way, and Berner ended up getting the first three starts of the year instead. He played well enough to stick behind Irwin, and he's remained there since, starting again against Chicago later in the year. Nasco's loan to the Silverbacks will last the duration of the season, though the Rapids have the option to recall him at any time.

Maybe Atlanta is getting on the same bandwagon that the last two NASL champions were; both the Tampa Bay Rowdies in 2011 (Eddie Ababio) and New York Cosmos in 2012 (Joseph Nane, Hunter Freeman) had former Rapids on the roster as they lifted the trophy. Just saying.
