REDBLACKS re-sign Kevin Brown and Randall Evans

The Ottawa REDBLACKS announced Tuesday the club had re-signed American linebacker Kevin Brown and American defensive back Randall Evans to one-year extensions ahead of the opening of CFL Free Agency.

Brown is coming off this third year with the REDBLACKS, recording 42 defensive tackles and 13 more on special teams in 15 games. He also had an interception. The Indianapolis native is just a year removed from a career season in 2018, when the 26-year-old had 55 defensive tackles, 13 on special teams, two sacks and an interception.

Evans, who is from Miami and went to Kansas State, had a breakout year in 2019. With just six games to his credit the previous two years with Hamilton and Ottawa, the 28-year-old Evans suited up for 17 games last year, recording 56 defensive tackles and 12 more on special teams.
