Another player that the club had a one year option and declined was Héber Araujo. The brazilian striker arrived in Seattle for the 2023 season. After an exciting start with two goals in the first two matches, Héber was not able to keep up with the goals.
The striker had 25 appearances for the Rave Green with only two goals and one assist. He ended the season with very few minutes and it was clear that the coach didn't trust him anymore. He didn't signed with any other club yet.
