While the New England Revolution have brought in talent from outside the organization, they had yet to make some offseason moves to bring players back. That changed on Monday.
This offseason New England Revolution fans have seen a decent amount of players leave the roster. Diego Fagundez has appeared to play his final game with the Revs, Alexander Buttner is rumored to be headed back to Europe, and Lee Nguyen penned a thank you letter.
Still, one familiar face was re-signed after being out of contract with the club. Tommy McNamara will be coming back to New England.
McNamara was acquired in a trade with the Houston Dynamo and went on to appear in 14 games for New England in 2020 where he tallied two assists in the regular season.
The New York native made some strides with the Revs in 2020. He proved to be a reliable midfielder and someone that Bruce Arena could trust.
It will be interesting to see how McNamara is used in 2021. With Arena stating that he wants to make some moves this offseason, McNamara could see more time coming off the bench.
But bringing back McNamara will strengthen the depth of the roster as a whole as they prepare for an interesting 2021 season.
