Release Regarding Status of Luke Rodgers

The team released a statement Friday regarding Luke Rodgers' visa status

HARRISON, NJ (March 30, 2012) - The New York Red Bulls released the following statement regarding forward Luke Rodgers today:

"After going through the entire immigration and appeals process, Luke's P-1 Visa application has unfortunately been denied by the U.S. government for now. We have spoken with Luke about potential options and have mutually decided that it would be in all parties' best interests to terminate his current MLS contract so he could play elsewhere. However, we will also continue to track his progress this year while working with immigration officials with the goal that he could join the Red Bulls sometime in the future."
