Riders sign LB Jeff Knox Jr.

Saskatchewan has added linebacker Jeff Knox Jr. back into the fold.

The 25-year-old was among the final cuts after the Tampa Bay Bucs completed training camp. He was released by Chris Jones and the Riders in January to pursue an NFL opportunity.

Knox played two seasons with Saskatchewan making 177 tackles, 29 special teams tackles, one sack and one interception in 35 games. He was named a CFL West All-Star after his rookie CFL season in 2015.
