BOSTON -- Former NFL linebacker Junior Seau is trying out some new careers this fall as part of a television show called "Sports Jobs."

What he really wants is his old one back.

"That would be nice," he told The Associated Press after riding on the Zamboni between periods of Thursday night's NHL opener between the Boston Bruins and the Washington Capitals. "Tell Belichick to call me."

Seau has already came out of retirement twice to play for New England Patriots coach Bill Belichick. Last year, the 12-time Pro Bowl selection joined the team in December after it was struck by a rash of injuries; this year the Patriots have already lost linebacker Jerod Mayo for 6-8 weeks.

Seau's show, which will premier on Versus in December, features some of the jobs behind the scenes in sports. On Thursday he was working as the Capitals' equipment manager.
