(CFL) - The Hamilton Tiger-Cats have signed quarterback Jeremiah Masoli to a two-year contract extension, the team announced Thursday.

The deal comes one day after the team traded Zach Collaros to the Saskatchewan Roughriders in exchange for a second round pick (10th overall) in the 2018 CFL Draft.

Masoli, a St. Louis grad, started 10 games for the Ticats, winning six of them, after taking over as the starting quarterback on Labour Day.

“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 and former University of Hawaii head coach. “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.”

Masoli was due to become a free agent on Feb. 13.
