Not much real news out of Sounders practice today. Although we did finally get around to asking coach Sigi Schmid about midfielder Terry Cooke, the former English professional who has been working with the Sounders this week after being released in his fifth season with the Colorado Rapids.

"He has been here since we started training on Wednesday,” Schmid said. “He was let go by Colorado earlier. He is still around and we wanted to take a look at Terry. Chris Henderson has played with him in the past. … We wanted to see where he is at and talk to him. You are always trying to look. The trade deadline is September 15 so we have until September 15. If you can improve your roster in some manner, you try and do it. In Columbus, this was the time of year that I picked up Adam Moffat back in 2007 and he got off to a great start in 2008. When I was with the (L.A.) Galaxy, this was the time of year that I picked up Hurculez Gomez from the team he was playing on. He stuck around for a little bit. So, you can find guys at this time of the year."
