The team announced on Monday that Faulk, who spent his entire 13-year career with the Patriots, will announce his retirement on Tuesday. The ceremony will be held at The Hall at Patriots Place at 10:30 on Tuesday morning.
The retirement ceremony will be open to the public, but those attending will need to pay an admission fee to The Hall. Mike Reiss reports the Kraft’s will donate half of tomorrow’s proceedings to a charity of Faulk’s choosing.
Among those who will be speaking, Patriots Owner Robert Kraft and head coach Bill Belichick. The ceremony should be full of emotion as Faulk’s time in New England helped define the Patriot Way and played a large role in the success of this team over the past decade.
So many plays stand out when I look back over Faulk’s time with the Pats. His characteristics as a football player and person shine through even more. His work ethic, awareness, football IQ, character, leadership, ability, selflessness and so much more are some of the many reasons he did so much for this team and organization.
I know I speak for all of us in Patriots Nation when I say he will be missed and I wish him all of the best moving forward.
