The Lions have released quarterback Casey Printers. The move comes two days after he threw an interception in overtime that sealed the team's loss to the Winnipeg Blue Bombers.
He entered Monday's game with a 32-11 lead after starter Travis Lulay injured his finger. Following the game-changing interception in the 47-35 loss, Printers flung his helmet to the ground and berated intended receiver O'Neil Wilson.
"At this time, we believe it's in the best interest of our club to part ways and move forward," Lions GM and head coach Wally Buono said in a statement. "We wish Casey the very best."
