Jermaine Jones has finally found a home for the 2016 MLS season. Jones has joined the Colorado Rapids in a sign-and-trade deal with the New England Revolution. While the Rapids get Jones, the Revolution have received a first-round draft pick in the 2017 SuperDraft and general allocation money.
Jones joined the Revolution in August 2014 as a Designated Player after a blind draw for his services. Jones helped lead the team to the MLS Cup final in his first season. Prior to the MLS, Jones spent 14 season with various European clubs.
Jones has been a mainstay for the US Men's National Team since switching his allegiance from Germany to the US in 2009. Jones was one of the stars for the USMNT in the 2014 World Cup including his memorable long distance goal against Portugal.
Jones will join Marco Pappa and Zach Pfeffer as newcomers to the Rapids midfield, however Rapids fans will have to wait for his anticipated debut until after Jones serves a 6 game suspension for contact he made with a referee during last years post season.
