The Ottawa Redblacks announced on Friday that the club has added veteran Canadian wide receiver Paris Jackson.
 
Jackson, 33, played 11 seasons in the CFL with the B.C. Lions.

The Vancouver native has 420 career regular season receptions for 5,757 yards and 31 touchdowns.
 
Jackson won two Grey Cups with the Lions in 2006 and 2009.

In 2008, Jackson had surpassed 1,000 receiving yards in a season for the first time in his career (1,180 on 76 catches), scored eight touchdowns, was named to the CFL West Division All-Star squad and the Lions' nominee for the league's Most Outstanding Canadian award.
