The Seattle Sounders FC signed midfielder Aaron Long to a contract today. According to MLS policy, teams do not disclose the years or money of the deal.

Long comes to the Sounders FC after being drafted by the Portland Timbers in the second round of the 2014 MLS SuperDraft. He was released by the Timbers on July 2nd.
