Evans could be on the move

De­fen­sive line­man Zack Evans doesn’t want to leave Ot­tawa.

But be­cause of the busi­ness side of the Canadian Foot­ball League, Evans, a starter who played with the Red­blacks for their first four sea­sons, may have a new ad­dress some­time af­ter noon on Tues­day when free agency be­gins.

“It’s crazy,” Evans said Mon­day. “It’s a scary thing not know­ing your fu­ture. I was in Saskatchewan, I thought I’d re­tire there, but then I got picked by Ot­tawa in the ex­pan­sion draft. I was given a tremen­dous op­por­tu­nity to play for a new team, re­de­fine my­self and be­came what I am to­day. I’m so thank­ful (to the Red­blacks), I thought I’d re­tire here, too.”

Is there a chance he could still re­turn to the Red­blacks?

“There’s al­ways a chance,” said Evans. “You never know. Ob­vi­ously there are so many mov­ing parts in free agency. I’m try­ing to not freak out and take it as it comes.”
