Revolution Waive O'Brian Woodbine

O'Brian Woodbine during a preseason friendly against Real Salt Lake - New England Revolution

The Revolution announced this morning that they waived Jamaican defender O'Brian Woodbine.

It was a short relationship that ended without much fanfare. The New England Revolution have waived fullback and Jamaican international O'Brian Woodbine, according to a press release on Monday morning. Woodbine departed without making a single competitive appearance for the team.

The move now leaves the Revolution with a 28-man active roster. It also frees up another international slot, though that wasn't necessary; with only two remaining spots, at least one of the Revs' international slots is likely to go unused anyway. If anything, said slot could now be considered trade fodder.

Woodbine's exit is disappointing for the player, but not at all surprising. He was never more than a depth piece on this team, and even in situations where it was thought that his services would be necessary, he was left on the bench in favor of other defensive options.

IN all, this is like the release of Paolo DelPiccolo in the sense that it tells us pretty much nothing. The Revs already had a free roster spot and a free international spot. Furthermore, Woodbine was only making just over $52,000, so it wasn't a salary dump. It just means that the Revs are now down one depth piece in defense, still have an international spot for trade bait, and will most likely make at least two more moves before the roster deadline in a few months. What moves those will be is still anybody's guess.
