Samba Camara’s contract has been voided by the Revs due to failure to obtain a P-1 Visa. On the afternoon of the teams first practice of the 2020 season, the club announced that the 27 year old defender was unable to secure the required visa, resulting in the contract being voided.

Camara was to join New England via a December 23rd transfer from French Ligue 2 side Le Havre. Considered by some to be a key piece in solidifying the Revs back line for the upcoming season, this opens up speculation on what Bruce Arena and company may do with the new found roster flexibility. The Revs do still have three veterans on the roster who have played significan minutes in the center of the backline in Andrew Farrell, Antonio Delamea, and Michael Mancienne, as well as the newly drafted Henry Kessler who Arena seems to be high on out of Virginia. It doesn’t feel like an immediate move is neccesary, but I’d expect Arena to evaluate the group that he has over the next few weeks leading up to the season and determine if they need to bring another player in or if he’s confident in the group that he has in camp to start the campaign.

What do you think the Revs should do with the newly opened roster spot? Let us know in the comments!
