Boss was USL-2 goalkeeper of the year in 2008, with Charlotte.
Sounders FC has signed goalkeeper Terry Boss, who played in MLS last season for the New York Red Bulls.
Boss, 27, was United Soccer Leagues-2 Goalkeeper of the Year in 2008, playing for Charlotte. He was signed by the Red Bulls in September and waived last month.
Boss has been training with Sounders FC since early June. Brother Kevin Boss is a tight end for the New York Giants.
“I was aware of Boss while he was playing in USL-2 with the Charlotte Eagles,” said Sounders FC coach Sigi Schmid in a statement released by the team. “He’s got good size, good range, and he works very hard. He had an injury setback last year, but he’s looked very sharp in his training with us. “
