MLS Re-Entry Draft: Full list of players available for selection

Cory Gibbs anchored the defensive line for the Chicago Fire in 2011 and he came through the Re-Entry Draft

Major League Soccer will hold its Re-Entry draft for the second year in a row. The first round will take place on December 5 with the second round taking place on December 12. Players available in this year's Re-Entry Draft include 69 players who had their options declined in addition to a handful of players that are out of contract. The full rules, timeline, and player eligibility are listed here.

Last year the Chicago Fire took Cory Gibbs in the second round of the re-entry draft. Gibbs ended up being the anchor on the Fire's defensive line so there's real value to be had here. It's important to note that Gibbs was selected in the second round and not the first round. Players selected in the first round are paid at the cost of their option that was declined. Players selected in the second round negotiate a new contract with the team that selected them. Only two players were selected in the first round of Re-Entry Draft last year. Most contracts were re-negotiated because this is a mix of players that for the most part have become too expensive or injury-prone for their current team to keep them. All of that should be considered along with the positive contributions of Gibbs when looking over the list.

Gregg Mixdorf will be breaking down the top targets for the Fire in the next couple of days. For now the full and unedited list of players available in the re-entry draft is after break.
