Printers was cut by the National Football League's Kansas City Chiefs on Sept. 1, but the former B.C. Lions quarterback wasn't out of work for long: he inked a three-year contract worth $1.5 million with the Hamilton Tiger-Cats on Thursday, a deal that makes him the highest-paid player in the CFL.
Printers played three seasons for B.C. and was named the CFL's top player in 2004 after throwing for 5,088 yards and 36 touchdowns. Despite his success, he left for the NFL following the 2005 season, a move fuelled by the Lions' refusal to name him the starter over veteran Dave Dickenson.
Printers failed to impress the Kansas City brass in 2006, spending most of season on the team's practice roster.
Now he's back in the CFL and we want to know what you think.
Can Printers be effective in his CFL return following a two-year absence from the league? Can he help turn around the Tiger-Cats, who sport an aneamic 1-8 record, and help Hamilton make the playoffs? What does Printers's return mean to the league?
