After 13 seasons in the CFL, all of them with the Montreal Alouettes, slotback Ben Cahoon is calling it a career.

The Montreal Gazette reported Friday the 38-year-old is expected to retire.

Cahoon notified the team over the holidays he won't be coming back, according to the report. Cahoon also told several teammates he won’t be returning in 2011.

Earlier in the week, he told the Gazette he had one or two more seasons in him.

It isn’t clear whether Cahoon is leaving the Alouettes or the game of football altogether, but CFL players who retire before the start of training camps are able to return at any time during the season.

Born in Orem, Utah, Cahoon was drafted sixth overall by the Alouettes in the 1998 CFL draft.

He has three Grey Cups and two CFL Most Outstanding Canadian awards to his name.

Cahoon is the all-time CFL receptions leader with 1,017 catches and sixth in career reception yards with 13,301.
