The Colorado Rapids signed defenders Keegan Rosenberry and Danny Wilson as well as midfielders Mark-Anthony Kaye and Jack Price to multi-year contract extensions on Wednesday.

Rosenberry inked a three-year extension through the 2024 season, while Kaye signed a four-year pact through the 2025 campaign. Both deals come with a club option for an additional year.

The contract extensions of both Wilson and Price carry through the 2024 season with club options for both the 2025 and 2026 campaigns.

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.

Wilson, 30, had two goals and two assists in 29 appearances (all starts) last season.

"Danny has cemented himself as an important piece of our club's defense," Smith said. "His leadership, along with his ability on the ball and reading of the game, have been key parts to the success of our backline in recent years. We're delighted to extend his stay in Burgundy and look forward to seeing his continued contributions for the club."

Wilson has four goals and four assists in 81 career appearances (75 starts) with the Rapids.

Price, 29, tallied 12 assists last season to lead the Rapids, good for fourth-most in MLS.

"Jack has become the heartbeat of our team and one of the best midfielders in the league since his arrival four years ago," Smith said. "His leadership, selflessness and elite set-piece deliveries have been a vital part of our on-field success and we're thrilled to secure his future in Burgundy."

Price has recorded two goals and 32 assists in 104 appearances (100 starts) with the club.
