The Hamilton Tiger-Cats announced Wednesday the football club has re-signed American quarterback Dane Evans through the 2023 season.
“We are excited that Dane and his family have chosen to stay in Hamilton for the next two seasons,” said President of Football Operations and Head Coach Orlondo Steinauer. “Dane is not just an outstanding quarterback, but an outstanding human being. His work ethic and authentic leadership skills make him someone that teammates naturally appreciate.”
Evans, 28, made 18 total career starts, including 15 regular season starts, one playoff start and two Grey Cup starts over four seasons in Hamilton. For his career, he has completed 393 of 562 passes (70%), for 4,924 yards, 29 passing touchdowns and 18 interceptions, adding 66 carries for 309 yards and six rushing touchdowns. The Sanger, Texas native led the Ticats to its second consecutive Grey Cup appearance in 2021, completing four of nine passes for 21 yards before being forced to leave the game due to injury.
The 6’1, 218-pound University of Tulsa product originally signed with the Ticats in October 2017 after a successful collegiate career where he registered 944 pass completions on 1,577 attempts for 11,680 yards, 84 touchdowns and 47 interceptions in 46 career games with the Tulsa Golden Hurricane.
