Casey Printers is headed to the NFL.
MOJO radio in Vancouver is reporting that Printers has signed a three-year deal with the Kansas City Chiefs.
''Words can't even describe the feelings right now,'' Printers told MOJO 730. ''We're just very excited at the opportunity to be in the National Football League.''
Printers would not talk about financial terms of the deal.
Printers was the CFL MVP in 2004 when he threw for 5,088 yards with 35 touchdowns and only ten interceptions. He was also second on the team with 469 rushing yards and led the Lions with nine rushing touchdowns.
Despite struggling with shoulder and toe injuries in 2005 Printers managed to throw for 1,676 yards and nine touchdowns with six interceptions. He also ran for 336 yards on just 38 attempts for an average of 8.8 yards per carry to go along with two rushing touchdowns.
Just for any lions fans who didn't see this on the main message board. It appears you'll have DD as starter for another year.
