TORONTO - The Toronto FC rehaul continues, with Canadian midfielder Kyle Bekker shipped to FC Dallas to help fund future moves.Toronto got allocation money in exchange for the 24-year-old Canadian international from Oakville, Ont. — money it will likely use to pay for a target like veteran Polish defender Damien Perquis.Knowing that other clubs were interested in Bekker, Toronto protected him in last months expansion draft so as not to lose him for nothing. That interest continued. With the depth we have in midfield, this was just a move where we could acquire some allocation so we could try to provide some depth to more positions on the field that we needed, head coach Greg Vanney said in an interview Wednesday.Allocation money allows MLS teams to pay down salaries to help meet the leagues salary cap.Bekker is the ninth player from Torontos 2014 roster to leave the club.Bekker was chosen third overall by Toronto in the 2013 MLS SuperDraft — at the time the highest pick ever used on a Canadian. Toronto, which traded down from the first pick, selected him after a flurry of deals.“Our priority was Kyle. In fact if we had had to use the (first) pick, we would have used it on Kyle,” then-team president Kevin Payne said at the time.We went into the draft thinking that he was the best footballer on the list, Payne added of Bekker, who was named MVP at the pre-draft MLS Combine.Bekker never really got his chance to shine, however, with just three starts, nine appearances and 335 minutes played in 2013. He saw more action last season, with 13 starts in 20 appearances.In two seasons with Toronto, the former Boston College star made a combined 35 appearances between league and Amway Canadian Championship play.Vanney said Bekker showed a lot of skills in training.Hes a great striker of the ball, left foot, right foot, said Vanney. Hes a quality player. I think quite possibly some of those things didnt always come out on the field with us but we knew they were kind of there.Maybe for him, its a change of venue, a change of scenery, different voices that maybe he can really flourish in. But theres no question that theres talent there. He had some great games for us.Bekker, who has won 13 caps for Canada, did not request the move.Not at this time, said Vanney. There was previously some discussion where he might have been interested in a move. But currently he was happy where he was. And he was working hard.Vanney said there had been interest from other clubs in the young Canadian.Follow @NeilMDavidson on Twitter Ian Kennedy Jersey . - The Denver Broncos kept rookie wide receiver Tavarres King from joining the Green Bay Packers by promoting him to their active roster Tuesday.

The brash-talking, Heisman Trophy-winning quarterback from Texas A&M entered and exited the Lucas Oil Stadium media room through a back door. He ignored the television screens around him, monitors that provided live coverage of his media availability and that had been showing his college football highlights prior to his arrival. And it seemed Johnny Football had suddenly transformed himself into Johnny Business. "This is a job now. There are guys families, coaches families and jobs and all kinds of things on the line," he said in a stern, deliberate voice at the NFLs scouting combine. "For me, it wont be a hard thing to kick. Im extremely focused on whatever organization Ill be at and really pouring my heart out trying to be football 24-7 with that team." What he has to prove now is that he means every word. Since bursting onto the national stage in his Heisman-winning freshmen season, Manziel has been living large. Hes been courtside at NBA games, played golf at Pebble Beach, partied in Cabo and become a feature attraction for memorabilia hounds. Hes participated in dunk contests, publicly complained about life in College Station, Texas, developed a friendship with Tom Brady and never been shy about -- anything. But in Indianapolis, none of that stuff means a thing. Here, scouts and NFL front-office executives are treating Manziel as just another draft hopeful in the standard blue-and-green warm-up suit. Theyll see how he runs, how he tests and perhaps most important, how he answers questions. Most teams want to know whether this 21-year-old, fun-loving football star is mature enough to handle millions of dollars and live up to the tag of franchise quarterback. Fridays media availability may have been a good start. Rather than showcasing his bravado, Manziel, at times, sounded almost apologetic for some of the things hes said and done recently. "The main thing I wanted to portray that was more in the subplots of the article," he said, when asked about a story in which he seemed to warn Houston about bypassing him with the No. 1 overall pick, "was that whatever team I do end up with, whenever I do get to that team, whenever I am in that organization, each one of those guys is now my teammate, my brother and if Im on the field with those guys, Im going to try to be the best football player I can be." Other times, he sounded almost defiant. "I knew who I was meeting with, butt Im not sure of his official title.dddddddddddd Something along the lines of just a counselor," he said when pressed about reports he was being treated for alcoholism and anger management while at Texas A&M. When it became clear the 2012 Heisman winner measured in at 5-foot-11 3/4 inches, 207 pounds, shorter and lighter than his listed college measurements of 6-1 and 210, and shorter and lighter than many NFL teams seek in a starting quarterback, he wouldnt confirm the measurements. Instead, he explained that he more heart and passion for this sport than anyone in the draft. Not all the news was bad for Manziel. Though he stands about five inches shorter than Blake Bortles, another quarterback vying to wind up in Houston, Manziel came in with bigger hands -- a potentially big advantage on draft weekend. "I think it (hand size) is something that is highly underrated," said Arizona coach Bruce Arians, who has tutored Peyton Manning, Ben Roethlisberger and Andrew Luck among others. "It depends on where you play. If you play in Lucas Oil, not too bad. Now, if you play in Green Bay and you struggle with controlling a football when its cold and wet, thats a problem. That goes into the evaluation process hard." Theres little doubt about Manziels skills. In 2012, he broke the SECs single-season record for total offense (5,116 yards), became the fifth player in FBS history to throw for 3,000 yards and rush for 1,000 in one season and then set an all-bowl rushing record for a quarterback (229 yards). After his jet-setting offseason and an NCAA investigation into autographs on memorabilia, critics contended a distracted Manziel regressed. But he actually threw for more yards (4,116), more touchdowns (37) and wound up with a better passing efficiency (172.9) in 2013 than he did in 2012. The Texas native believes he will only continue to get better on a bigger stage. But what scouts and team executives must determine between now and Mays draft is whether Johnny Football is for real or whether this personality change is just one more part of his ongoing act. "Im from a small town of Kerrville, Texas, 20,000 people. That gets lost when people make me out to be a big Hollywood guy," Manziel said. "Sometimes you get caught up in certain things, but at the same time its about continuing to learn and continuing to adapt to everything thats going on in my life. Im not saying its always easy, but continuing to be who Ive always been is a big thing for me."
