The New England Revolution have re-signed winger DeJuan Jones, the team announced Friday.

Jones, 22, made 20 regular-season appearances — mostly at left back — as a rookie in 2019 and assisted the Revolution’s injury-plagued back line with timely recoveries and speed. New England first signed Jones, who also also contributed one goal and one assist, last winter after selecting him 11th overall out of Michigan State University in the 2019 Major League Soccer SuperDraft. 

Jones occupied a reserve roster spot last year but will take up a senior roster spot in 2020, which means he will be in line for a hefty pay bump. Jones made $56,250 in guaranteed compensation last season, according to MLS Players Associated figures, and will make a minimum of $70,250 under his new contract next season.

How the Revolution use Jones in 2020 remains to be seen. Though he primarily played as a fullback in his rookie campaign, he entered the league as a forward and only played in defense to cover for Edgar Castillo, who broke two ribs in August.

New England acquired Dutch left back Alexander Büttner in October as its first offseason signing, bolstering the team’s back line. Jones likely will be either a second-string left back or play in a more advanced role in 2020.
