Kevin Faulk, the venerable New England Patriots running back who has been with the team since he was drafted out of LSU in 1999, is not ready to retire just yet.
After serving pancakes for National Pancake Day at Children's Hospital Boston on Tuesday, Faulk told reporters:
"Of course, I'd like to be involved in the New England Patriots; let's keep it at that."
"I've been here 13 years playing and if I happen to retire or they don't happen to bring me back, I'm still going to be a New England Patriot. . . . I'm very blessed and fortunate that I have a few options." (via Boston Herald)
Faulk had been a vital player on three of the Patriots' Super Bowl-winning squads but was inactive in last season's Super Bowl against the Giants. An ACL tear from the previous season limited him to just seven games, 17 carries and 7 receptions this past season.
