The Colorado Rapids signed defender Keegan Rosenberry and midfielder Mark-Anthony Kaye to multi-year contract extensions on Wednesday.

Rosenberry inked a three-year extension through the 2024 season, while Kaye signed a four-year pact. Both deals come with a club option for an additional year.

Rosenberry, 28, started all 30 of his matches in 2021 and delivered two goals and three assists.

He has seven goals and 14 assists in 161 games (156 starts) with Colorado and the Philadelphia Union (2016-18).

"Keegan is one of the leading and most consistent fullbacks in the league," Rapids general manager Padraig Smith said in a news release. "His quality on both sides of the ball, work rate and athleticism have made him an integral part of our success since his arrival three years ago so we're delighted he has committed his future to the club."

Rosenberry played every minute of the MLS season in both 2019 and 2016.

Kaye, 27, joined the Rapids midway through the 2021 season following a trade from Los Angeles FC. He started 14 of his 15 appearances with Colorado, collecting one goal and two assists.

"Mark has been one of the top central midfielders in MLS since he first joined the league and has continued to demonstrate his quality during his time with us," Smith said. "We're delighted to secure his future in Burgundy and are excited to see the heights he can help the club reach in the coming years."

Kaye has 10 goals and 20 assists in 92 career appearances (85 starts) with LAFC and the Rapids.
