The Cardinals signed Fry to a reserve/future contract Wednesday, Darren Urban of the team's official site reports.

Analysis: Fry was a free agent for the entire 2022 campaign after being waived by the Jaguars in mid-August. He has played in three career games since 2020, making an appearance for Atlanta, Cincinnati and Kansas City, and gone 5-for-6 on field-goal attempts but just 5-for-7 on PATs during that stretch.

Gets tryout

Fry (undisclosed) received a tryout with the Chiefs on Monday, Aaron Wilson of ProFootballNetwork.com reports.

Analysis: Fry spent training camp with the Jaguars, ultimately ending up on IR and reaching an injury settlement with the team. Now healthy, Fry was given the opportunity to earn a chance with the Chiefs, as they prepare to possibly be without Harrison Butker (ankle) on Thursday. However, the Chiefs signed Matt Ammendola, who was also present at the tryout, to their practice squad instead.

Waived/injured by Jaguars

The Jaguars waived Fry (undisclosed) off injured reserve with an injury settlment on Friday, per the NFL's official transaction log.

Analysis: Fry recently reverted to Jacksonville's IR after going unclaimed on waivers. It is unclear what type of injury he is dealing with, but he will now be able to look for a new landing spot once his health is back up to par. The 27-year-old converted five of his six field-goal attempts over the first two seasons of his career.

Reverts to IR

The Jaguars placed Fry (undisclosed) on the team's injured reserve list Tuesday, Aaron Wilson of ProFootballNetwork.com reports.

Analysis: Fry's placement on IR during the preseason means he will be forced to sit out the entirety of the 2022 campaign, unless he can reach an injury settlement with Jacksonville this offseason. The 27-year-old kicker made five of the six field-goal attempts over the first two seasons of his career split between Atlanta, Cincinnati and Kansas City.

Waived with injury designation

The Jaguars waived Fry (undisclosed) with an injury designation Monday.

Analysis: Fry made a 23-yard field goal and connected on his only extra-point try during Friday's preseason contest against Cleveland. However, he appears to have picked up an injury during the game as well. If the 27-year-old clears waivers, he'll revert back to Jacksonville's injured reserve list.

Joins Jacksonville

Fry signed a contract with the Jaguars on Friday, Field Yates of ESPN reports.

Analysis: Fry was one of four kickers that Jacksonville worked out, and he evidently outperformed the other three candidates. Now that he's on the Jaguars' training camp roster, Fry will compete with Ryan Santoso and Andrew Mevis for the team's kicking job.

Working out with Broncos

Fry is participating in Denver's minicamp on a tryout basis, Aric DiLalla of the Broncos' official site reports.

Analysis: Fry has bounced around between Atlanta, Cincinnati, and Kansas City since he entered the league in 2020 and is now trying to earn another opportunity in Denver. The Broncos are set at kicker with Brandon McManus still on the roster, but Fry could land a spot on the practice squad if he impresses.

Cut from practice squad

Fry was cut from the Bengals' practice squad injured list Monday, Aaron Wilson of ProFootballNetwork.com reports.

Analysis: Fry spent the majority of the season being cut from, then re-signed to the Falcons' practice squad. He ultimately ended up with the Bengals on Jan. 4 and was their kicker in Week 18 against the Browns, while Evan McPherson was out with a groin injury. He was placed on the Bengals' practice squad injured list on Jan. 12 with an undisclosed injury.

Jan 31, 2022 6:17 PM EST

Lands on injured list

Fry (undisclosed) was placed on the practice squad injured list Wednesday.

Analysis: Fry joined the active roster for Sunday's Week 18 loss to the Browns since Evan McPherson (groin) was sidelined. However, he reverted to the Bengals' practice squad Monday. The nature of the 27-year-old's injury isn't yet clear, but he's unlikely to rejoin the active roster for Saturday's wild-card matchup now that McPherson is back to full health.

Jan 12, 2022 7:46 AM EST

Shifts back to practice squad

Fry reverted to the Bengals' practice squad Monday, per the NFL's transaction log.

Analysis: Fry served as Cincinnati's kicker in the absence of Evan McPherson (groin). He made his only two attempts, one a 36-yard field goal and the other an extra point. Fry made four of his five field goals and four of his five extra points across two games this season.

Jan 10, 2022 8:22 PM EST

Perfect as fill-in option

Fry made his lone field-goal attempt while making his lone extra-point try in Sunday's 21-16 loss to the Browns.

Analysis: Fry handled the Bengals' placekicking duties in Sunday's regular-season finale since Evan McPherson (groin) was unavailable. The 27-year-old didn't see much work in the loss but converted both of his kicks. If McPherson is healthy for Saturday's wild-card matchup against the Raiders, Fry is unlikely to take the field.

Jan 10, 2022 9:41 AM EST

Handling Week 18 kicking duties

Fry will handle kicking duties for the Bengals in Sunday's game against the Browns with Evan McPherson (groin) inactive for the contest, Jay Morrison of The Athletic reports.

Analysis: The assignment was expected for Fry, as the Bengals likely wouldn't have promoted him from the practice squad Saturday if they planned on having McPherson available for the regular-season finale. McPherson is expected back for the Bengals' wild-card game, so Fry will revert back to the practice squad following the Week 18 contest. Fry's lone regular-season action in 2021 came with the Chiefs back in Week 16, when he went 3-for-4 on both his field-goal and extra-point attempts while filling in for Harrison Butker, who was out after landing on the reserve/COVID-19 list.

Jan 9, 2022 8:50 AM EST

Elevated to active roster

Fry was elevated to the Bengals' active roster Saturday.

Analysis: Fry joined the Bengals' practice squad Tuesday and will be on the active roster for Sunday's Week 18 matchup against the Browns. His elevation signals that Evan McPherson (groin) could be unavailable, which would open up placekicking duties for Fry.

Jan 8, 2022 9:16 AM EST

Finds new home

Fry was signed to the Bengals' practice squad Tuesday.

Analysis: Fry spent most of the season bouncing back and forth between the Falcons' active roster and practice squad. He joined the Chiefs on Dec. 14 and filled in for Harrison Butker in Week 16 against the Steelers, while Butker was on the COVID list. After Butker cleared protocols, Fry was cut on Dec. 28. He'll now provide emergency depth to Bengals' kicker, Evan McPherson.

Jan 4, 2022 2:11 PM EST

Cut from practice squad

The Packers have released Fry from their practice squad.

Analysis: Fry was waived by the Chiefs last week afte filling in for Harrison Butker (illness) in Week 16. He subsequently spent last week on Green Bay's practice squad. The journeyman kicker will now set his sights on a new opportunity.

Jan 3, 2022 1:39 PM EST

Joins Green Bay's practice squad

Fry was signed to the Packers' practice squad Saturday.

Analysis: Fry filled in for Harrison Butker (illness) in Week 16, but he was waived after Butker was restored to the Chiefs' active roster from the reserve/COVID-19 list. Mason Crosby has struggled this season, connecting on just 70 percent of his field goals. However, the veteran has make all his kicks in three straight games, so Fry will likely only be elevated in an emergency situation.

Jan 2, 2022 7:59 AM EST

Cut by Chiefs

The Chiefs waived Fry on Tuesday, Field Yates of ESPN reports.

Analysis: Fry filled in for Harrison Butker (illness) this past Sunday against the Steelers due to the latter's status on the reserve/COVID-19 list. He fared well enough, connecting on three of four field-goal attempts and three of four point-after tries in the 36-10 victory. Tuesday's transaction may indicate Butker is on the verge of clearing league protocols, but for Fry himself he'll seek another opportunity elsewhere.

Slated to kick for KC in Week 16

Fry is in line to serve as Kansas City's kicker for Sunday's game against the Steelers with Harrison Butker (illness) not available to play, Pete Sweeney of ArrowheadPride.com reports.

Analysis: Though the Chiefs haven't officially provided word on Butker's status for Week 16, Sweeney reports that the kicker won't be eligible to play after landing on the reserve/COVID-19 list Monday following a positive test of the virus. That implies that Butker is following the protocols for unvaccinated players, making him ineligible to rejoin the Chiefs until 10 days after his positive test. In preparation for Butker's Week 16 absence, Kansas City signed Fry off its practice squad Monday, setting the stage for him to make his second NFL appearance this weekend. He made his debut with the Falcons in Week 4 of the 2020 season, missing one of two extra-point attempts and converting on a 23-yard field goal in a loss to Green Bay.

Dec 22, 2021 9:13 AM EST

Signed to active roster

Fry was signed to the Chiefs' active roster Monday, Matt Derrick of ChiefsDigest.com reports.

Analysis: Fry joins the active roster after Harrison Butker was placed on the reserve/COVID-19 list Monday. The 25-year-old kicker appeared in one game last year for the Falcons, but before that, his last game was with the Eagles in 2016. Butker still has a chance to clear protocols before Sunday's matchup with the Steelers, but Fry will still get reps with the active roster during practice just in case Butker is unable to clear protocols.

Dec 20, 2021 3:36 PM EST

Joins Kansas City

Fry was signed to the Chiefs' practice squad Tuesday, Tom Pelissero of NFL Network reports.

Analysis: Fry was cut from Atlanta's practice squad in mid-November and will now make his way to Kansas City. He'll be a reserve option for the Chiefs should Harrison Butker suffer an injury.
