FC Dallas made one roster move late Friday afternoon as they waived midfielders Rolando Escobar and Ezequiel Cirgliano per a club press release.

Both players joined the club in the middle of the 2015 season but neither really had any big impact on the club. The waiving of them does open up two international roster slots, which will likely be used fairly soon as preseason begins this weekend.

Escobar finished the year with 14 league appearances totaling 398 minutes. He suffered a season-ending injury (facial fracture) against Vancouver on Oct. 14.

Cirigliano started five matches, appeared in seven and finished the year with 431 minutes. The Argentine also played 90 minutes in FC Dallas first of four playoff matches last season, a 2-1 loss to Sounders FC in Seattle on Nov. 1.

The rumors of the two departing have been swirling around the internet for the last few weeks as each have been reportedly linked to new clubs.
