Jerry Bengtson is no longer a Designated Player, according to an updated list provided by the league last week.

Bengtson signed with the New England Revolution on July 5, 2012. The move required the Revs to pay Honduras’ CD Motagua a transfer fee, which led to the striker being labeled as a Designated Player. A club representative for the Revolution has confirmed that the title no longer applies.

Bengtson served as the second Designated Player in Revolution history as Milton Caraglio became the first when signed with the club on August 2, 2011. The Revs presently have one DP on the books in US international Jermaine Jones.

Bengtson is currently on loan with Belgrano of Argentina but is expected to return on June 30, 2015. When the loan was first announced on July 25, 2014, general manager Michael Burns told MLSSoccer.com that the Honduran has "multiple years remaining on his contract."
