(W)Revs Wrap: 02.12.07: Twellman Gold(-ish) Payday

The good news for New England Revolution fans: striker Taylor Twellman isn't going anywhere. Moreover, he's finally earning something like what one of the most consistent scorers in the league ought to.

Now there are two ways you can go about learning about this deal. You can read the vanilla, "terms of the deal were not disclosed" account on MLSnet.com, or you can find the details plus some background in Frank Dell'Appa's write-up for The Boston Globe:

"When Twellman makes his first appearance at preseason training today, the Revolution are expected to announce the signing of their all-time leading scorer to a four-year contract worth about $300,000 per year."

The best of the "background" content looks at the horror parade that were Twellman's early deals with the league. It's nice to see this put right, as well as some effort put forth to keep one of the league's more notable players States-side where we can enjoy his play. Not surprisingly, the Revs' corner of BigSoccer.com greeted the news with incredulous joy.

Returning briefly to the content on MLSnet.com: Guys, c'mon; clearly someone, somewhere is dishing on league contracts, so let's just open up the books that precious little bit, OK?
