Unfit Tejada Dropped By RSL

Panamanian international Luis Tejada has been dropped by Real Salt Lake, according to sources. Tejada, who was acquired the day after RSL traded for Freddy Adu, was supposed to pair up top with Jeff Cunningham to give RSL a lethal attacking duo. Unfortunately for RSL, he arrived out of shape and never got close enough to the in-shape sensation RSL was looking for.

Tejada made just one appearance with the club, that being as a late-game substitute in the season opener against FC Dallas. He has played just two minutes all year, according to MLSNet's official stats. "It was quite obvious his fitness level wasn't going to be high enough for MLS," said Kreis during Saturday's postgame press conference. "It's not easy to work that hard. I don't think he's quite used to that. He just hasn't figured into plans."

With the departure of Luis Tejada and the spot left vacant by Jason Kreis when he retired to become head coach, Salt Lake now has three roster spots open and at least $275,000 under the cap to play with. Perhaps they could make a move for Kasey Keller?
