A pair of 2010 NFL fourth-round picks are headed to the Canadian Football League.

Former standout USC running back Joe McKnight and wide receiver Jacoby Ford both signed with the Edmonton Eskimos on Friday.

McKnight was drafted by the New York Jets, who traded up in the fourth round to snag the versatile weapon, while Ford was selected by the Oakland Raiders after running a 4.28 at the combine.

While both had limited success during the early portion of their NFL runs, neither player made an NFL roster in 2015.
