With kicker Mike Vanderjagt back in the fold, the Toronto Argonauts have enlisted another former player to get him the football.

The Canadian Football League team on Friday lured long snapper Randy Srochenski out of retirement.

"It's great to have Randy back. He is without a doubt one of the best long snappers in the CFL," said Argos head coach Rich Stubler of Srochenski, a 13-year CFL veteran who had ended his playing career in January.

Srochenski, who is regarded as one of the more accurate long snappers in the league, is a veteran of 207 regular season games and played in two Grey Cup championships, winning with the Argos in 2004.

When he's not on the football field, Srochenski works year-round as a minister in the Hamilton area.

He is expected to join the Argos at training camp on Saturday.
