CFL: QB Casey Printers Now a Free Agent

Giants27Analyst IFebruary 19, 2009

Quarterback Casey Printers is now a free agent.

Printers was released by the Hamilton Tiger-Cats according to CKNW Radio in Vancouver.

In ten games last year, the Tiger-Cats starting quarterback had 1,693 passing yards, but had 10 interceptions and five touchdowns.

Printers was the CFL's Most Outstanding player during his three year tenure with the BC Lions. He's also had a short stint with the NFL's Kansas City Chiefs in 2006.

Halfway through the 2007 season, the Hamilton Tiger-Cats signed him and made him the highest-paid player in the league.

With Printers gone, rookie Quinton Porter is likely to take his place as starter.

The Toronto Argonauts and Saskatchewan Roughriders were reportedly looking to sign Printers.

The release also increases the odds that current Winnipeg Blue Bomber quarterback Kevin Glenn will end up in the black and gold.
