With Taylor Twellman day-to-day as he battles the lingering effects of a whiplash-like neck injury, the Revs have made a move to bring in offensive reinforcements. Former FC Porto, Benfica and Real Sociedad target man Edgaras Jankauskas, 34, is expected to join the team on trial this week, according to vice president of player personnel Michael Burns.

Jankauskas is currently out of contract, last having played for Skonto Riga (Lativa) in 2008, before that having recently been on the books at Belenenses (Portugal) and AEK Larnaca (Cyprus). The tall (6 ft 4 in.), physical striker has also played for a host of higher profile European clubs, including a three-year stint at FC Porto under José Mourinho where he earned a Champions League winner's medal in 2004.Video also available.
This is kind of the striker that we need - someone who has some experience and can bring a physical prescence into the box - his age has me concerned about his fitness but better a 34 year old guy that can give you 30-45 minutes of quality than a 19 year old that is keeping the bench warm.
