The LA Galaxy announced today that they've signed Robbie Rogers to a new multi-year contract keeping the now-fullback around for a few more years to come. Rogers has made 30 appearances and 22 starts for the club since signing in May of 2013.

"We are excited that Robbie will remain a part of our organization going forward," LA Galaxy Head Coach and General Manager Bruce Arena said. "He has proven to be a dynamic player in our League and an integral part of our success this year. We look forward to his continued contributions in the years to come."

Originally brought in as a one-to-one replacement for Mike Magee, injuries forced Robbie Rogers to adapt. First his own injuries which kept him out of the 2013 season for the most part, and then the injuries to Todd Dunivant which gave Rogers a chance to find a new path at left back.

In the 2014 season Rogers has made 15 appearances and recorded two assists. His full-time switch to defense on June 8th against Chivas USA, and since then the Galaxy have gone 10-2-7 in all MLS competitions in which Rogers appeared. He had one substitute appearance before his start against Chivas.
