Toronto FC allowed the most goals in Major League Soccer last season, a fact that almost ruined their high-powered offensive capabilities.

The Reds took a solid step toward fixing that problem by dipping into the new free agent market for longtime Rapids captain Drew Moor.

FC Dallas’ sixth-overall pick in the 2005 MLS SuperDraft, Moor had been with Colorado since 2009.

From TorontoFC.ca:

“Improving our defence is our top priority this off-season and we are very happy to bring Drew to Toronto FC,” said Toronto FC General Manager Tim Bezbatchenko. “Drew brings valuable MLS regular season and playoff experience to our backline. He is a proven winner and a leader with success in our league. Drew had a number of interested suitors and we are very pleased that he chose Toronto FC as his club and that he wanted to be part of what we are building here.”

It’s not a team-defining change, but adding the 31-year-old veteran isn’t going to hurt anything and joins a group headlined by Nick Hagglund and Damien Perquis.
