Safety Tony Jefferson wants to come out of retirement and play in 2024, according to Bleacher Report.

Jefferson, 32, last played for the New York Giants in 2022 and announced his retirement in May 2023.

He spent last season as a scouting intern with the Baltimore Ravens, a team with which he spent four seasons.

"Jefferson has stayed in shape, has been training, and wants to play again," per Tuesday's report. "He intends to start talking to teams in the near future."

Undrafted out of Oklahoma in 2013, Jefferson appeared in 113 games (67 starts) with the Arizona Cardinals (2013-16), Ravens (2017-19, 2021), San Francisco 49ers (2021) and Giants (2022). He recorded 492 tackles, 9.5 sacks, eight forced fumbles and four interceptions.
