The Tampa Bay Buccaneers have signed another Canadian Football League player. After getting wide receiver Derel Walker to sign on last week, they’ve contracted linebacker Jeff Knox Jr. The move was first reported by Draft Diamonds.

At 6’2”, 225 lbs., Knox is built like Kwon Alexander and Lavonte David: undersized, but speedy. He’s played for the Saskatchewan Roughriders of the CFL for the last two years, after going undrafted in 2015. Apparently, he’s shown enough to get another shot at the NFL.
Troublingly, Knox was arrested for domestic assault in 2010, eventually pleading guilty to misdemeanor simple assault, serving probation and completing a domestic violence program.
