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.
