Following the re-signing of defender Michael Mancienne, the New England Revolution added a goalkeeper early Monday evening.
The Revolution selected Jeff Caldwell with the third overall pick in the 2019 MLS End-of-Year Waiver Draft -- and no, he's not related to Revolution midfielder Scott Caldwell. Caldwell was selected after New England sent it's 11th overall pick and a 2020 second-round MLS SuperDraft pick to Orlando SC to move up in the draft.
New England now owns the 23-year-old's rights and can begin contract negotiations with the keeper who has two MLS seasons under his belt.
Caldwell was selected with the 19th pick in the 2018 MLS SuperDraft by New York City FC following his four-year collegiate career at the University of Virginia. He made 28 appearances for Memphis 901 of the USL Championship league following a loan from NYCFC.
While Matt Turner will more than likely continue to be the Revs' starter, Caldwell could provide a steady backup presence. Considering they selected Caldwell third overall, the Revolution possibly could see him as a starter some day.
