As a 37-year-old heading into his 13th professional football season, Randy Chevrier knows he’s on borrowed time.
Voluntarily letting go, however, isn’t an option for the longtime Calgary Stampeders snapper extraordinaire.
“I’ll play as long as they’ll let me,” said Chevrier, in the midst of his ninth training camp at McMahon Stadium. “It’s not about me calling it quits. It’s about someone here telling me they’ve had enough of me. That day would come after me exhausting all options to continue doing what I do.
“I want to play forever. And I feel like I can.”
A slimmed-down Chevy showed up to CFL camp this spring after shedding 40 pounds during the off-season, the impetus being a four-game stint as a healthy scratch to start the 2012 season, which didn’t sit well with the veteran long-snapper.
