Ryan Perrilloux doesn’t throw the greatest knuckleball.

That’s probably good news for the Calgary Stampeders.

The 26-year-old quarterback, who arrived at McMahon Stadium on Tuesday after finally straightening out his passport issues, was featured on the TV show The Next Knuckler earlier this year.
