OTTAWA — After making three signings on day one of free agency, the REDBLACKS continued to get in on the free agent action, signing linebacker Malik Jackson.

Jackson arrives in Ottawa after spending five seasons with the Calgary Stampeders.

Last season saw Jackson play in just two games, due to injury. He registered four tackles in those two outings.

In 2012, Jackson collected 57 tackles, three sacks and an interception, en-route to helping the Stamps to an appearance in the 100th Grey Cup. The six-year veteran has tallied 217 tackles, 11 sacks and two interceptions throughout his career.
