The team announced on Thursday that center Dustin Fry, guard Matt McChesney (pictured) and punter A.J. Trapasso have been signed to future contracts. They will be officially added to Denver’s roster at the conclusion of the 2009 NFL season in February.
Fry is a second-year center who spent the 2009 season on Carolina’s practice squad. He appeared in four games with St. Louis after being selected in the fifth round of the 2007 NFL Draft, and spent time on the practice squad with Cleveland in 2008.
McChesney spent 2009 training camp with the team before being designated released/injured on Sep. 9. He has also played defensive tackle during an NFL career in which he has seen time on the rosters of Miami, the New York Jets and St. Louis.
Trapasso was a rookie in 2009 who split the season on the practice squad with Tampa Bay and Tennessee. He entered the NFL with Tennessee as a college free agent on May 1 after being a semifinalist for the Ray Guy Award at Ohio State University. He might be best remembered for hitting the video board at the new Cowboys Stadium with a punt for the Titans in the preseason.
