Mike Jones Released
Sporting KC has apparently released defender Mike Jones from his contract with the team. That's the word from Callum Williams, the clubs play-by-play announcer today on Twitter. Looking at some of Jones' Tweets from yesterday, that certainly seems to make sense. Jones was Kansas City's second round pick in this year's Supplemental draft. The SIU Edwardsville graduate appeared in Sporting KC's first reserve league game of the season down in Houston against the Dynamo playing the entire game. That was his only appearance for KC during his time here. Jones did make one other bench appearance for KC, appearing on the bench during KC's trip to Chicago this year. The move leaves KC with 25 players on their active roster with Konrad Warzycha currently on IR. Good luck to Jones in his career whether it's in the game or not.
