OTTAWA — The Ottawa REDBLACKS have their quarterback locked in for the next two years.

Ottawa announced on Monday that the team has extended the contract of quarterback Jeremiah Masoli, keeping the veteran American pivot in the Nation’s Capital through the 2024 season.

“Having consistency at the quarterback position is a key piece to have success as a CFL team, so we’re very happy to be able to keep Jeremiah Masoli in red and black for the foreseeable future,” said General Manager Shawn Burke. “Jeremiah has proven himself as a leader both on and off the field, and makes us better as a team when he has the ball in his hands.”
