Veteran cornerback Patrick Surtain isn’t quite ready to retire.
The 33-year-old was cut loose by the Kansas City Chiefs this offseason following the arrival of the new regime of General Manager Scott Pioli and coach Todd Haley.
Proclaiming himself to be healthy again after an injury-plagued season last year, Surtain wants to give it one more shot.
“I’m just waiting on a call,” Surtain told Ethan Skolnick of the South Florida Sun-Sentinel.
Surtain said he’s willing to play either cornerback or safety.
At this point, he’s basically just looking for a new gig.
“I can still get out there on that wing,” said Surtain, adding that he thinks he can play safety in a pinch.
Surtain played in just eight games last season for Kansas City with two starts, recording 11 tackles, one interception and one forced fumble.
In 11 NFL seasons, Surtain has registered 37 career interceptions.
Surtain’s contract was terminated on February 24.
