Casey among 8 players let go by Rapids
COMMERCE CITY, Colo. -- The Colorado Rapids have let go of eight players, including the team's all-time leading scorer, Conor Casey.
Casey is leaving the team by mutual consent after scoring 50 goals in 121 games for the Rapids. He also was the MVP in Colorado's 2-1 win over FC Dallas in the 2010 MLS Cup.
The 31-year-old Casey has been hampered by injuries the last two seasons. He scored two goals in 2012.
Said Casey: "While I am sorry to see my time with the Rapids come to an end, I want to thank the supporters here in Colorado for everything they gave to me and the club over the last several years."
