Canadian Football League QB Printers gets workout in K.C.

CFL QB gets a workout
Casey Printers, a quarterback with the British Columbia Lions of the Canadian Football League, is in Kansas City for a workout.
“He’s here now,” coach Dick Vermeil said Wednesday. “Steve DeBerg is his coach, and Steve was at practice today.”
Printers is a mobile, 6-foot-2, 216-pound quarterback who played at TCU with LaDainian Tomlinson. He transferred to Florida A&M his senior year to play in a more pass-oriented offense.
He was B.C.’s backup this season but was the league’s MVP in 2004 after throwing for 5,088 yards and 35 touchdowns with 10 interceptions. He also ran for 469 yards in 2004.
The Chiefs have two backup quarterbacks — Todd Collins and Damon Huard — who are entrenched in their 30s. They drafted James Kilian in the seventh round this spring but cut him.
Printers had a workout in Miami earlier this week.
