“Bobby has played an integral role in the history of this club,” United general manager Dave Kasper said in a club release.

“He’s one of the fiercest competitors this league has ever seen and his dedication for winning has had a profound and consistent effect on our locker room for the seven seasons he has played for D.C. United. He’s a true professional and we wish him luck in his next chapter in Atlanta.”

Boswell, a two-time MLS Best XI selection (2006 and 2014), will help bolster Atlanta's depth at center back down the stretch, and will slot in behind first-choice paring Leandro Gonzalez Pirez and Michael Parkhurst.
