MLS to have abbreviated trade window today

Will the Colorado Rapids make a move on the first official day of the off-season?

Steven Bisig-USA TODAY Sports

From 9-1 ET, Major League Soccer is going to have an abbreviated trade window prior to the announcement of the expansion draft protected lists for every team. That means there's likely to be a heck of a lot of movement around the league on the first official day of the off-season.

Plenty of rumors have already started to get thrown about, including one involving the Colorado Rapids picking up Portland Timbers defender Michael Harrington. Another big name being tossed around is Amobi Okugo, who is being rumored as going to Orlando City SC in their first big MLS trade as an MLS franchise.

Following the movement in the morning and afternoon, the Rapids and every other team in MLS will put out their protected lists for the Expansion Draft this week. Until that happens, though, we're expecting a very hectic day. Hopefully, the hole-filled Rapids will be among the teams putting news into the headlines.
