I'm kind of surprised by that one; I guess he is an insurance policy in case Masoli gets banged up again although I hope he doesn't.

What will they do with Evans who has pretty much evolved into a short yardage rushing QB? He got 16 TDs that way in 2022 vs 4 passing.

Not hugely surprised. Nobody is in a position to go after Evans really so they keep him as a development guy.
Arbuckle is a "ready to play" backup.

I have been surprised by the Redblacks though. They have obviously worked whatever plan they had for the offseason very well. I think they had the biggest list of free agents to start with and have just a handful left to sign.

I like Arbuckle. They definitely played better when he was in. Mostly.
Good on them.
