And the eagle has landed for now…
Or the Feilhaber rather.
US national and World Cup veteran Benny Feilhaber is headed to the New England Revolution for now. A good move by the Revs–and one that Chivas should have considered–in getting value. The Revs elected to gain an asset and perhaps bring some other assets in if Feilhaber’s not the fit.
According to Steve Davis, Feilhaber’s cap number will be an astounding $400K. Good work by the agent on that one considering that Feilhaber would have less suitors in the summer (and less leverage) out of contract.
A deal to Houston–who according to ESPN reporter Jeff Carlisle and this Houston Chronicle article was pushing both Chivas and New England for–may still materialize.
