Cosmos announce the signing of Adam Moffat

Matthew Emmons-USA TODAY Sports

The New York Cosmos continue to reshape their roster after a disappointing 2014 campaign, and on Friday announced another new signing to add to the mix. The club has agreed to a deal with midfielder Adam Moffat, who has spent more than half a decade playing in MLS.

Moffat spent the 2014 season with FC Dallas, and spent time with the Seattle Sounders, Colombus Crew, Houston Dynamo, and Portland Timbers before that. The 28-year old has made 136 appearances during his eight year spell in MLS, scoring 12 goals and assisting six others during that span.

At the moment, it's unclear what sort of role Moffat will have with the club, but with the departure of Joseph Nane earlier in the winter, he'd seem an ideal candidate to be the first man off of the New York Cosmos bench*. While not the same sort of physically imposing player as Nane, he brings the sort of composure and quality decision making that Nane often lacked.

*It's certainly possible that I'm underrating the player here, but based on what I've seen, I just don't see him starting ahead of Danny Szetela, Marcos Senna, or potentially Jaime Valdes
