Benny Feilhaber agrees to 1-year deal with Colorado Rapids

Benny Feilhaber has agreed to terms with the Colorado Rapids, the team announced on Friday. 

Feilhaber, who turns 34 later this month, agreed to a one-year deal with a club option for 2020. He was thought to be leaning towards re-signing with LAFC, the team for which he made 38 league, playoff and cup appearances last season, scoring four goals. But with Feilhaber qualifying for free agency, the Rapids were able to come in and outbid LAFC for the midfielder's services, paying him a salary just...

"Benny has enjoyed great success as an incredibly productive midfielder and has won multiple trophies here in MLS," LAFC general manager John Thorrington said in a statement.

SANFORD, Florida -- Two days into camp with the U.S. national team, Benny Feilhaber can still barely believe he's here.

While Feilhaber has been called into a few January camps in recent years, the Sporting Kansas City midfielder estimates that it has been over six years since he was last called into a camp that didn't fall in the middle of the MLS offseason. His last appearance in a match outside of a January camp came in a friendly against Poland on Oct. 12, 2010.

Feilhaber said he first got...


Sporting Kansas City's Benny Feilhaber escapes suspension for dive

In the 83rd minute and with the score tied 1-1, the 32-year-old playmaker went down easily in the box after a challenge from Andres Romero. And while no foul or card was given for the act, the MLS disciplinary committee has seen fit to fine the U.S. international an undisclosed amount.

Sporting KC's team defense delivers consistent success in topsy-turvy MLS

Go behind the scenes with Sporting Kansas City's equipment crew for a look at the work they do during training.

"Benny said that?" Sporting Kansas City coach Peter Vermes asked.

"Benny wouldn't have said that in 2013. So either we've brainwashed him, or it's something that he really believes."

A day earlier, Benny Feilhaber had ascribed Kansas City's consistent success, at least in part, to a commitment to team defense. That even Feilhaber, who arrived four years ago as a stereotypically attack-minded playmaker, sees it that way is testament to just how deeply Vermes' principles have taken root.
