His work ethic and authentic leadership skills make him someone that teammates naturally appreciate.”
Evans, 28, has made 18 career starts with Ticats since signing in 2017, including a pair of Grey Cup starts.
The Texas native has completed 393 of 562 passes for 4,924 yards with with 29 touchdowns and 18 interceptions in four CFL seasons.
