Calgary signed Chevrier as a free agent on Jan. 31, 2005. He was selected in the seventh round (241st overall) by the Jacksonville Jaguars in the 2001 NFL Draft and was selected in the first round (fifth overall) by Edmonton in the 2001 CFL Draft. In 2001, he attended training camp with the Jaguars before joining the Dallas Cowboys and then the Cincinnati Bengals. Chevrier attended training camp with the Bengals in 2002 and was allocated to the NFL Europe’s Barcelona Dragons before joining the Eskimos. He attended training camp with the New York Jets in 2004.
In his seventh season with the Stampeders, Chevrier suited up for all 18 regular-season games as well as the West Division semifinal. It was the fourth straight season and the seventh time overall on his career he played in every game. He once again served as the team’s long snapper for punts and place kicks and went the entire season without making an errant snap. In addition to his snapping duties, he made eight special-teams tackles. Chevrier played his 125th career game with the Stamps on Nov. 5 against Winnipeg.
Continuing to prove his durability, Chevrier played in every regular-season game as well as the West final, turning in another excellent season as the Stamps’ long-snapper. He did not make an errant snap all season and contributed to the productive seasons for Burke Dales, who was the CFL’s leading punter, and rookie kicker Rob Maver, who won the league scoring championship. He made five special-teams tackles and even punted the ball once, sending the kick an impressive 52 yards downfield. While most of a long-snapper’s job is unheralded, Chevrier did make a pair of conspicuous plays during the season. On Aug. 27 at BC, he recovered a fumble after a missed field goal early in the game to set the stage for a Stampeders touchdown and an eventual Calgary victory. In the season finale at Winnipeg, Chevrier made a one-yard catch for his second career touchdown.
After spending the first six years of his CFL career on the defensive side of the football, Chevrier made the switch to offence. Already the club’s long snapper, Chevrier gave the team flexibility by serving as a reserve offensive lineman. He dressed for all 18 regular-season games and both playoff contests. On Aug. 8 against Winnipeg, Chevrier played in his 100th game in the CFL. He did not make an errant long snap during the season and recorded seven special-teams tackles. He helped the Stamps lead the league in punting average (46.0) and rank second in field goals (42).
The versatile Chevrier continued to provide valuable service to the Stamps, adding depth on the defensive line and handling the long-snapping duties. He appeared in all 18 regular-season games as well as the West final and the Grey Cup. It’s the fourth time in five seasons he has played in every game; missing only the 2007 season finale on Nov. 3 against BC. Chevrier was among the team leaders in special-teams tackles with 13 and added one defensive tackle and a pass knockdown.
Chevrier played 17 games, before missing the final contest at BC with an injury. The game was the first he missed as a member of the Stamps (53 straight). His best game of the season came at Edmonton on Aug. 4 when he notched four tackles, one quarterback sack and a special-teams tackle. He had another big game on Sept. 15 against Saskatchewan, scoring his first-career touchdown on a one-yard pass from Henry Burris and recovering a fumble. Chevrier was perfect in his long-snapping duties, never misfiring a snap.
Chevrier attended McGill University from 1996 to 2000 and collected 23 major awards during his collegiate career. He was the first player in school history to receive the J.P. Metras trophy as the most outstanding lineman in Canadian university football in 2000 and was selected to play in the East-West Shrine game. He played 40 games and recorded 157 tackles and 10 quarterback sacks with the Redmen.
Randy, wife Tania and their three children Luke, Brett and Kyle live in Calgary year-round. Chevrier serves as the club representative to the Canadian Cancer Society for the annual PinkPower campaign. He was formerly the rep for the Every Yard Counts program with the Alberta Children’s Hospital and is very active in the community during both the season and off-season. Prior to choosing to pursue a professional football career, Chevrier had a tryout with Bobsleigh Canada.
