Kevin Faulk Not Ruling Out Retirement, But Not Yet Ready to Make Decision on Future

Kevin Faulk Not Ruling Out Retirement, But Not Yet Ready to Make Decision on FutureKevin Faulk's football career may be at its end, as the longest-tenured Patriots player has admitted he is considering retirement.

Faulk joined Twitter following the Patriots' loss in the Super Bowl on Sunday, and on Tuesday, Faulk tweeted that his future in the NFL is up in the air at the moment.

"Good afternoon everyone, been seeing the question thrown around if [I'm] retiring. As right now [can't] say yes and [can't] say no."

Faulk was somewhat surprisingly inactive for the Super Bowl on Sunday, as he was listed on the Patriots' inactive list just hours before kickoff. 

The veteran running back's role has been limited to say the least this season. Faulk, who missed most of last season with a knee injury, played in just seven games this season. In those seven games, he totaled just 17 carries, seven catches and a pair of punt returns.

The 35-year-old began the season on the physically unable to perform list before being activated in late October and making his season debut during Week 8 at Pittsburgh.

ESPN.com reported on Monday that the belief within the Patriots locker room is that Faulk will call it quits.
