"We wanted to take a look at Terry," Sounders FC coach Schmid said today. "Chris Henderson has played with him in the past. We wanted to see where he was at and talk to him."
Meanwhile, Sounders GM Adrian Hanauer hinted they were ready to deal in Cooke.
"We know Terry pretty well," Hanauer said. "It's not very often that there's a player of Terry's quality that is free and available to come in and spend a few days with the guys and get to know the team a little bit...but then there's another layer to it, which is 'Does he fit in our system and if he does, can we put a deal together to get it done?"
