Revolution sign Jamaican defender Woodbine

As the New England Revolution seek their first playoff berth since 2009, the club added defensive depth by acquiring the Reggae Boyz fullback.
The New England Revolution added fullback depth Thursday, signing Jamaican international defender O'Brian Woodbine on a free transfer.

The 25-year-old Woodbine, who was on trial with D.C. United earlier in the summer, has 14 caps for Jamaica and has started the Reggae Boyz's last three World Cup qualifiers at left back.

“O’Brian has both professional and international experience and we’re expecting him to come in, help push our team and provide depth the last few months of the season,” Revolution general manager Michael Burns said in a statement.

Woodbine joins a group of fullbacks that includes the likes of Chris Tierney, Kevin Alston and No. 1 overall 2013 MLS SuperDraft pick Andrew Farrell, and he will embark on his second stint playing in the USA. He played for the USL's Charleston Battery in 2009 and 2010.

He'll aim to help out a Revolution side looking to return to the MLS playoffs for the first time since 2009. Currently, the Revs sit in the final playoff position in the Eastern Conference.
