As 3DownNation’s Justin Dunk reported on Wednesday, the Hamilton Tiger-Cats have re-signed quarterback Jeremiah Masoli to a two-year contract.
The 29-year-old QB threw for 3,177 yards, 15 touchdowns and five interceptions while completing over 63 per cent of his passes, adding 70 carries for 446 rushing yards and four touchdowns. Masoli’s best numbers since coming to the CFL in 2013. He went 6-4 as a starter in 2017.
“Jeremiah is a proven dual-threat quarterback who’s outstanding work ethic, competitive nature and resilience is infectious to his teammates and everyone on our staff,” said June Jones, head coach of the Tiger-Cats in a statement.
“We’re very excited to have him back in Hamilton for the next two seasons as he continues to elevate his game to new levels.”
After being named Hamilton’s starting quarterback on September 4, Masoli led the Canadian Football League the rest of the season in passing yards (3,032) and rushing yards by a quarterback (384), was tied for second in passing touchdowns (15), and had the second-least interceptions (4) among starting quarterbacks over that span.
