Jozy Altidore, Toronto FC

Thanks to Andrew Wiebe of MLSSoccer.com for this idea. As far fetched as it might sound, Altidore could be a good signing for Orlando City. When he’s been healthy, he’s consistently performed at an excellent level. But that’s one hell of a qualifier for Altidore, who’s missed most of the last two seasons with injuries. On top of the injury concerns, he’s currently on a hefty Designated Player contract in Toronto, one of the biggest (and worst) contracts in the league. Assuming he gets bought out (a very safe assumption unless a buyer comes in), he would be available, but at what price? If he comes in on a cheap deal, it’s worth the risk. But if he’s a DP or pushing that threshold, Orlando would be wise to stay away from the former US international star.
