Jermaine Jones (seemingly) makes his case for a new Revs deal
U.S. men's national team midfielder Jermaine Jones is out of contract and has said he's been lowballed by the New England Revolution in their attempts to bring him back to the club. It appears he's far from done from adding to the public contract negotiation.
Jones published an Instagram post Friday detailing the Revolution's stats with and without him in the lineup in the two years he's been with the club. Jones, who is facing a six-game suspension for an altercation with referee Mark Geiger in last year's MLS playoffs upon signing with a new club, is coming off the U.S. January camp, in which he started in friendlies against Iceland (at central midfield) and Canada (at center back). He presented how valuable he's been to the Revolution in his post, which he deleted very soon after (but not before the screenshot police could strike):
The Revolution, after seeing summer Designated Player and central midfield signing Xavier Kouassi tear his ACL, traded for Vancouver Whitecaps midfielder Gershon Koffie to fill the void. Whether there remains a place for Jones, however, remains to be seen.
