Days before his loan to Argentinian side Belgrano was originally set to expire, the Revolution and forward Jerry Bengtson mutually agreed to part ways on Tuesday, per a club release.

Bengtson, 28, was originally signed to a designated player deal in July 2012, and appeared in 36 games for the Revolution, but only scored four goals.

Despite a show knack for scoring at the National Team level, the Honduran striker struggled to find consistency during his time in Foxboro, and fell far short of playing up to the promise of a designated player.

After scoring only two goals during his first 12 months on the roster, Bengtson told in Jun. 2013 that his struggles were starting to eat at him.

“Yes, it’s definitely bothering me,” Bengtson said through a translator. “But it’s just something that’s personal; I just have to keep working hard for it.”

The situation only seemed to deteriorate further when the Revolution loaned him to Belgrano last summer – a move that was made even though there were plenty of questions about the striker’s spot at the time.

With Bengtson no longer in tow, the Revolution are now carrying five forwards: Teal Bunbury, Charlie Davies, Juan Agudelo, Sean Okoli, and Timi Mulgrew. Davies and Okoli are the only players who’ve played exclusively up top this year.
