We'll be officially announcing in the near future that defenders Jeff Curtin and Mike Zaher have been signed to MLS contracts.
Curtin and Zaher will be available for selection in tomorrow's reserve game versus the Crew's reserve side (10 a.m. ET on the RFK Training Fields).
Curtin was drafted by the Chicago Fire in the second round (14th overall) of the 2006 MLS SuperDraft. He did not see any first team action during his first year with the club, but figured into three games (all starts) in 2007, notching his first career MLS goal. The Pennsylvania native played his collegiate ball at Georgetown University, notching 12 goals and seven assists in 73 matches. Perhaps he can give some Georgetown dining tips?
Zaher was originally drafted by Toronto FC in the third round (30th overall) of the 2008 MLS SuperDraft. He spent four seasons at UCLA where he contributed seven goals and eight assists in 69 games (51 starts). He's also anonymously famous as the leading man in JoJo's music video "Too Little Too Late" which The Washington Post's Dan Steinberg recently wrote about here.
