About 10 seconds. That’s how long Chris Snee said he considered playing somewhere else if the Giants were uninterested in bring him back.

“If there was no interest from their point of view I’d probably say thanks for everything and call it a career,’’ Snee told The Post Wednesday. “At this point it’s not about money for me. I’m a Giant, I couldn’t imagine myself playing for any other organization.’’

There have already been huge changes with the Giants, with plenty more to come, but Snee believes he will not part of the old guard swept away in the upheaval. Until now, he had not spoken publicly about his physical health, his mind-set or his desire to stay or go, with the only hint of his future coming last week from his head coach and father-in-law, Tom Coughlin, who said Snee hoped to resume his career.

“If I didn’t feel good I would have no decision to make,’’ said Snee, who has undergone hip and elbow surgeries. “I think it came down to the fact I feel really good. Am I the guy who was controlling the line of scrimmage four years ago? No, but do I think I can play at a high level and compare well to most of the guards in the league? Absolutely.

“I think I would regret not giving it my all, that’s what I’ve always done for this organization, give it everything I have. That’s what I’ll do, I’ll try to do that for one more year.’’

The 32-year-old Snee, the best offensive lineman (a four-time Pro Bowler) on units that won two Super Bowls, made it through just three games in 2013 before finally giving in to the pain.

Snee missed just one game in an eight-year span as the starting right guard. He managed to get through the 2012 season despite the deterioration of his left hip and needed surgery to repair a torn labrum and to clean out bone chips. Snee spent so much time strengthening his left side that his right side suffered and he had surgery last October to repair a torn labrum in his right hip.

In November, just before Thanksgiving, Snee underwent extensive surgery on his right elbow, which he called “more significant’’ than the hip procedure.
