Toronto FC picks Robbie Findley in phase one of Re-Entry Draft

Russ Isabella-USA TODAY Sports

Robbie Findley is now officially a former Real Salt Lake striker once again, with Toronto FC selecting him in phase one of the 2014 Re-Entry Draft.

The move is a surprising one, in part because it means they'll be paying Findley a not-inconsiderable sum.

2014 was not a particularly kind year to Findley, who scored only one regular season goal and had no assists. His minutes, too, were limited after returning from an injury sustained in the MLS Cup final in 2013.

Toronto FC, as a result, will have to pay Findley 105 percent of his contract as a result of his selection.

Findley's second run at Real Salt Lake was a mixed one, but during his time, he did start to transition his game to one less dependent on his abundant pace. This is key to his longevity not just in this league, but in any league moving forward.

Real Salt Lake passed in the re-entry draft today.
