Shalrie Jamal Joseph (born May 24, 1978) is a Grenadian footballer.
Joseph was drafted fourteenth overall in the 2002 MLS SuperDraft by the New England Revolution, but did not join the team until the 2003 season, having spent much of 2002 searching for a club overseas and later playing for the New York Freedom of USL D-3 Pro League. Upon joining the Revolution, Joseph quickly proved himself to be one of the most talented defensive midfielders in the league. He was named to the MLS Best XI in 2005.
He became the Revolution's captain in 2010 after previous captain Steve Ralston left the Revolution to join AC St. Louis. Later in 2010, Joseph took a leave of absence from the team while he was involved in the Major League Soccer substance abuse and behavioral health program. Joseph returned to the Revolution at the end of May.
The Revolution signed Joseph to a Designated Player contract for the 2012 season. On August 1, 2012, Joseph was traded to Chivas USA in exchange for Blair Gavin, a second round pick in the 2013 MLS SuperDraft, and allocation money.
In April 2014, Joseph rejoined the New England Revolution.
Joseph earned his U.S. citizenship in 2009.
