According to CKNW in Vancouver, Printers did not accept a practice roster spot with the Kansas City Chiefs after clearing waivers Sunday. The Chiefs cut the DeSoto, Texas, native on Friday and told him that there would be an offer coming to stay on the practice squad but it couldn't formally be made until today.
CKNW is saying that the Hamilton Tiger-Cats and Toronto Argonauts have both contacted the Printers camp in the past 24-hours and the Ticats are prepared to make a serious offer for his services.
There were other NFL teams that expressed interest in him prior to the cut down date, including the Arizona Cardinals, but any team that brought him in at this stage would have to put him on the active roster.
Printers was also cut by the Chiefs last year but was later placed on their practice roster.
His last played in the CFL with the Lions in 2005. His best season came in 2004 when he threw for 5,088 yards and 35 touchdowns while completing 65.8 per cent of his passes. Printers also rushed for 469 yards and nine touchdowns that season.
"According to the report, the Hamilton Tiger-Cats have tabled an offer to Printers and the Toronto Argonauts have called Medlock to express their interest. The Arizona Cardinals also showed some interest in Printers prior to the cutdown date."
Why do I feel this will be much like the NHL coming to Hamilton? Are we just going to be used to get Printers a better deal elsewhere, like Toronto?
