The latest roster move comes after Jacksonville waived Fry with an injury designation due to a groin injury. That move, made on Aug. 15, had allowed the Jaguars to retain Fry on injured reserve if he cleared waivers. Fry can now seek out an opportunity with a new team.
Fry played for South Carolina from 2013-to-2016. He has bounced around professionally over the years.
After playing for Steve Spurrier’s Orlando Apollos in the Alliance of American Football in 2019, Fry signed with the Chicago Bears in April of the same year. After being waived by the Bears, Fry also spent time with the Baltimore Ravens in 2019.
In 2020, Fry spent time with the Carolina Panthers, Tampa Bay Buccaneers and Atlanta Falcons. He remained with the Falcons into the 2021 season on the practice squad. After a Nov. 17, 2021 release, Fry was signed to the Kansas City Chiefs practice squad on Dec. 14, 2021. Fry played in one game for the Chiefs before being released.
This year, Fry has spent time with the Green Bay Packers, Cincinnati Bengals and the Jaguars. In 3 regular-season games, Fry has made 5-of-6 field goals.
