Casey Printers has found a place to play football.

The former CFL quarterback will be playing alongside Terrell Owens for the Allen Wranglers in the upcoming season of the Indoor Football League.

Printers signed a deal with the Wranglers on February 3.

The team held a practice at a high school indoor facility on Thursday where Owens caught passes from Printers. The former Dallas Cowboys receiver is not only a player for the Wranglers, but also co-owner of the team.

Printers spent most of his professional career with the B.C. Lions, and also spent time with the Hamilton Tiger Cats and Kansas City Chiefs.

He joined the Lions for the 2003 season as a third-string quarterback and saw little playing time before replacing Dave Dickenson when the starter went down with an injury during the 2004 season. 

Printers would go on to throw for 5,008 yards and 35 touchdowns and was named the CFL's Most Outstanding Player that year.

The following season, he was caught up in a quarterback controversy with Dickenson over who should start. In 2006, he opted to sign with the NFL's Kansas City Chiefs after turning down a three-year deal from the Leos.

He was released by the Chiefs after one season and signed with the Tiger-Cats the following year, where he spent two seasons.

He returned to the Lions in 2009 but struggled to regain his former form and was let go the following season.

During his CFL career, Printers threw for 11,647 yards with 64 touchdowns and 38 interceptions.

The Wranglers open their 2012 campaign on Saturday, Feb. 25 against the Wichita Wild.
