The New England Revolution selected goalkeeper Jeff Caldwell in Monday’s End-of-Year Waiver Draft. The move came after the Revolution acquired the third spot in the waiver order from Orlando City SC in exchange for the Revs’ 11th position and their 2020 second-round SuperDraft pick.
Caldwell, 23, was drafted 19th overall by New York City FC in 2018. After failing to play a single minute during his rookie season, Caldwell was sent on a season-long loan to Memphis 901 in 2019. Caldwell made 28 appearances in the USL Championship, recording six shutouts.
Before joining the professional ranks, Caldwell played four years at the University of Virginia, making 61 appearances. His contributions earned him All-ACC honors three times. Caldwell also have experience with various US Youth National Teams.
The Revs still need to come to terms with Caldwell, though that probably won’t be an issue as the goalkeeper has already sent out a tweet to express his excitement for his next adventure.
