Chicago Fire pass in first stage.

Rainier Ehrhardt

The Chicago Fire passed in the first stage of the Re-entry Draft. Once a team passes in the first stage of the Re-Entry Draft, they are automatically out of the first stage and will have to wait until the second stage to pick again.

Out of all the Fire players who were available in the first stage, only Corben Bone was selected. Bone will be joining the Philadelphia Union. Hopefully Bone will get the chance in Philly that he never got in Chicago.

Since Chris Rolfe, Logan Pause, Joel Lindpere, Maicon Santos,  Shaun Francis, Wells Thompson and Michael Videira were not selected, the Fire will be able to negotiate a new contract with these players between now and stage duex, which takes place next Wednesday. Frank Yallop has already made it known that they are interested in bringing back Logan Pause if possible. Chris Rolfe is also a player who could possibly come back to the Fire at a reduced salary.

As for Daniel Paladini, it sounds like the Fire are still shopping him around.

Thank God for Guillermo Rivera.

UPDATE: Paladini has been traded to Columbus.

While the Fire did not make any waves, a few other teams did. Here is a rundown of today's moves:
