Morris gives Seattle Sounders plenty of options at forward

 

Now that the Seattle Sounders have signed Jordan Morris, the question becomes where will they play him. He joins a Sounders' frontline that may be the deepest in MLS with Clint Dempsey, Obafemi Martins and Nelson Valdez. It's a problem his new coach, Sigi Schmid, will gladly have.

"Having too many good players is never an issue," said Schmid at Thursday's introduction. "You can't have enough of them, at the end of the day. I think Jordan is a forward. He still has a useful exuberance that he could probably run on the flank for a little bit. How we are going to play this year will be determined more into the preseason. We're obviously leaning more towards three strikers or a narrower front than we have in the past to make use of the talent we have."
