Option declined, available in re-entry draft: D James Riley, D Daniel Woolard. (If they’re not selected, United can re-engage in contract talks. However, it doesn’t appear either player is in the club’s plans.)

Option declined, withdrew from re-entry draft: MF John Thorrington. (Status unclear.)

Released: MF-F Dwayne De Rosario, F Carlos Ruiz, F Lionard Pajoy, MF Marcelo Saragosa, MF Syamsir Alam, MF Sainey Nyassi, D Dennis Iapichino.

Jan. 16 SuperDraft in Philadelphia: United has the No. 1 overall pick and the next-to-last selection in the third of four rounds.

On a side note, as two DCU supporters brought to my attention, Boswell is the latest of more than a dozen players who have returned to United for a second tenure:

Boswell, Raul Diaz Arce, Rod Dyachenko, Fred, Christian Gomez, Brian Kamler, Roy Lassiter, Domenic Mediate, Jaime Moreno, Clint Peay, Troy Perkins, Santino Quaranta, Carey Talley, Richie Williams, A.J. Wood.
