The New England Revolution have announced the waiving of midfielder Ryan Kinne and forward Zack Schilawski. Kinne, who was picked in the third round of the 2011 MLS SuperDraft, had only played one game for New England last season and only one game during the FC Desert Diamond Cup. Shilawski has made 50 appearances for the Revs.

For supporters, neither of these two players being waived is that surprising. Kinne never ended up playing much with the first-team, spending a good portion of last year with the Revolution reserves.Schilawski, meanwhile, never fully lived up to the hopes that many fans had for him after being selected 9th overall in the 2010 MLS Superdraft, so he may have been deemed surplus with the arrival of Saer Sene and, eventually, Jose Moreno.

With the waiving of these two players, the Revolution officially have 23 players on their roster. This leaves the Revolution with 5 additional roster spots to reach their intended goal of 28 players before MLS's September 15th roster freeze deadline.

One of those spots is almost certainly occupied by Blake Brettschneider, who recently changed his twitter handle to reflect his new Revs jersey number. The other four spots are anyone's at this moment, although it is important to note that the loss of Kinne and Schilawski leaves the Revs even thinner at striker than ever before, which bodes well for trialists like Runstrom, Roach, and Smith.

Happy with these moves? Feel like Kinne deserved a better shot, or Schilawski would have done better under Heaps this season? Or do you think this is a good way to cut dead weight? Leave a comment below!
