Rapids obtain Gomez's rights from D.C. United

COMMERCE CITY, Colo. -- The Colorado Rapids signed Argentine midfielder Christian Gomez on Friday after acquiring his rights from D.C. United. Gomez signed a two-year deal worth about $400,000 per season. The team holds an option for a third year. The Rapids gave up a first-round pick in the 2009 MLS SuperDraft and future considerations to obtain Gomez's rights. "To say it's exciting is an understatement," Rapids coach Fernando Clavijo said. "We chomped at the opportunity." The 33-year-old Gomez was Major League Soccer's MVP in 2006 and an All-Star the last three seasons. He had 10 goals and nine assists with D.C. United last season. Gomez ranks first in the league since 2005 with 99 points. He's also second in that time frame in goals (35) and assists (29). "Christian is one of the biggest signings in the 13-year history of the Colorado Rapids," managing director Jeff Plush said. "We think it's a very exciting time for our organization."
