RENTON , WASH. – The Seattle Sounders FC today waived midfielder Michael Fucito and defenders Evan Brown, and Lamar Neagle.
Brown, 22, and Fucito, 23, were both selected by Seattle in the 2009 MLS SuperDraft. Brown was chosen 16th overall from Wake Forest and Fucito was taken with the 46th pick overall from Harvard. Neagle, 22 and a Federal Way native, joined Seattle as a rookie free agent from Nevada-Las Vegas on June 10.
