Russell has told the Washington Post that the 2013 season will likely be his last.

D.C. United announced Wednesday afternoon that defender Robbie Russell had re-signed with the club for at least the 2013 season. Terms of the deal were not disclosed, though Steven Goff of The Washington Post reports that Russell has told him that the 2013 season will likely be his last.

The 33-year-old Russell made 19 appearances and 16 starts for the Black-And-Red in 2012, scoring one goal. He was acquired from Real Salt Lake following the 2011 MLS season in exchange for a third-round selection in the MLS SuperDraft.

"We are pleased that Robbie will return to United for the 2013 season," said D.C. United General Manager Dave Kasper in a statement released by the club. "Robbie brings a wealth of experience and veteran leadership to our locker room, and we are pleased to have reached an agreement to bring him back."

Russell previously played professionally in Iceland, Norway, and Denmark before making the move to MLS.
