Vancouver, Ca—The BC Lions are looking for a fourth quarterback to use in training camp. A lot of buzz has been going on these three quarterbacks: Cole Berquist of Montana, Travis Lulay of Montana State, and most importantly, CFL unemployed quarterback Casey Printers.

Coach, Wally Buono, has confirmed the Vancouver Sun that he has received a message from Printers in his office at Surrey. But Buono has been so busy, especially on the CFL Draft last Saturday, that he doesn't have time to check it. Buono returned, though, from a trip from Seattle.

"I know that Casey and his agent [Jason Medlock] are no longer working together," Buono said. "Am I eager to hear what he has to say? No more eager than I would be if any of my other former players called up to chat. Casey understands where we're at. But I will visit with him."

Surely, he will.

Printers, who was named the CFL's Most Outstanding Player in 2004 with his 35 passing touchdowns, is finding a job in the CFL after being, what Vancouver Sun calls "dumped," by the Hamilton Tiger-Cats (Giants27). Last year, Printers was highest-paid player with $500,000 per annum. He is only 28, so he isn't done with his career yet.

"We have people [quarterbacks] on our radar and we're going through that process," Buono explained. "Our view toward Casey hasn't changed—and I don't believe it will."

Let's hope it won't.
