San Jose Earthquakes take three in MLS re-entry draft

Brad White

The Earthquakes added some depth on Friday in the MLS re-entry draft.

The San Jose Earthquakes selected three players in Friday's MLS re-entry draft. The Earthquakes bolstered their depth with the additions of defenders Dan Gargan and Ty Harden as well as winger Bryan Jordan.

The Earthquakes were the busiest team in the draft and the only team to select more than two players. San Jose selected Gargan with its first round pick. Gargan, a right-side back comes to San Jose after spending last season with the Chicago Fire. The 30-year-old Gargan appeared in 19 games for the Fire last season and has also played for Toronto FC and Colorado during his MLS career.

San Jose added to its defensive depth again in the second round by selecting Harden. Harden played in just five games with Toronto FC last season due to injury, but Earthquakes general manager John Doyle said Harden is healthy now. The Earthquakes used their final pick of the day to select Jordan. Jordan spent the first five years of his MLS career with the LA Galaxy. He appeared in eight games last season, including four starts.

Doyle said the team has already agreed to terms on a contract with Gargan. San Jose has seven days to make contract offers to Harden and Jordan.
