He was released by Arsenal in 2014 after failing to ever secure a first-team spot.
His production actually isn't too bad. But his quotes are what make the totals seem less than ideal.
Pros: Can score goals and is just 28 years old. Could he become another Sebastian Giovinco in MLS?
Cons: Seems to have had issues with management at every club he's played for. President Darren Eales has said many times he wants a player who wants to help establish a culture at Atlanta United. Bendtner wouldn't seem to be that type of leader.
Frankly, I would be surprised if Eales or technical director Carlos Bocanegra would take the risk, unless the media is exaggerating Bendtner’s issues with his clubs. Eales and Bocanegra would know from their time in England.
