Big changes are on the way. Or, at least that's what the Seattle Sounders have been preparing us for. What that actually means is very much a "remains to be seen" issue, but given what we know, we figured we'd at least take a guess at the status of each player on the Sounders roster.

The Sounder at Heart staff classified each player as "keep," "drop" or "fence.

SEATTLE Maybe, just maybe, this is the year.

The Seattle Sounders have played two matches this postseason and have brought two ignominious, franchise-haunting streaks to abrupt ends. Just days after finally dispatching the LA Galaxy from the playoffs for the first time in four tries, the Sounders turned around on scant rest and won the first leg of a playoff series for the first time in club history.

Clint Dempsey focusing on his play despite unknown USMNT standing

Clint Dempsey would like to play in the Copa America Centenario this summer, but whether he gets that chance remains to be seen.

The U.S. Men's National Team has looked a bit different in its two most recent camps, as head coach Jurgen Klinsmann has opted to call in younger players while leaving some veterans at home with their clubs.

Clint Dempsey may not have been called into either of the past two United States training camps, but he still sees himself as having a future with Jurgen Klinsmann and the national team. Dempsey's last turn with the national team came in a much criticized performance against Mexico in the CONCACAF Cup, which cost the USMNT a spot in the 2017 Confederations Cup.

As the USMNT prepares for the Copa America Centenario in June, multiple new players could be entering the fold.

The United States national team needs some new blood. There are multiple big-name veterans who can't hack it anymore on an international stage, so Jurgen Klinsmann will surely be looking for younger guys to fill the gap.
