    per the SportsDwarf, aka Chris Collins on CSNE.... kind of surprising Weis in KC or Josh in Denver wouldnt make an offer for him.

    Is this the end of the road for #33?

    If the Pats can somehow get Sproles I would say Faulk is in trouble....the Pats may also be looking for a fullback late in the draft

    Faulk is going to have to have a solid offseason IMO,sad thing to see Kevin getting older

    I don't think so and I hope not. I hope he's not getting any offers from them because he and the Pats are hammering out the last details of his new contract. Faulk still has quite a bit left in the tank and needs to be brought back in next season. On top of that, this locker room needs leadership on both sides of ball and if that game against Baltimore should have convinced anyone of anything (aside from the fact that the Pats defense was easily run on last season), it's that Faulk is every bit of that.

    I would not want to see Sproles' idea of blocking an oncoming blitzer on third down. :eek:

    I think Faulk will stay for another year due to lack of leadership but that tank is slowly getting down there....probably still enough for another season...his last I assume

    ...but no offer from the Pats. This looks like the old BB let them go a year early methodology at work. Remember Willie McGinest not hearing anything before he took the hint? A shame since Faulk still has something in the tank and is a great safety valve for Brady (also can pick up the blitz)

    I certainly hope not. Letting Faulk go at this point when he wouldn't break the bank and still has some juice left would be a mistake.

    Sproles has a 1st and 3rd round tender. He isn't going anywhere. A lot of teams are going to regret not making an offer for Faulk.

    Re: Kevin Faulk;No Offers From Anyone...

    I think in this offense a pass-catching RB like faulk is a must.

    Here is how I see things playing out for NE.

    1. Faulk re-signs.
    2. Faulk re-signs.
    3.Faulk r-esigns.
    4. We draft someone
    5. Sproles


    Faulk has 2-3 more years IMO (He played more snaps than any RB last year)


    Is westbrook available.?

    +1. I pray that Kevin Faulk is on the team this year. He and Brady are the only two bedrock guys still standing from the glory years. And he more than showed last season that he can still flat out play.

    Unless I'm really missing something, Faulk didn't show any dropoff in effectiveness last year. Not sure why he wouldn't be a lock for this upcoming season.

    That damn 4th and 2 fail probably stayed with him in his head the whole season knowing what a competitor the guy is

    Re: Kevin Faulk has no offers from anyone...

    I saw Kevin knocking people back and hitting people, running hard. He looked great out there.

    I think he has lost a step, but he went from incredibly quick guy to semi-quick guy who will put his helmet down and get those extra yards.

    So, I just came back from dinner and we had two bottles of the wine for the two of us, so I'm not thinking straight, but I will be very disappointed if Kevin isn't on the team. generally I don't care about a lot of what goes on, and I don't think Belichick is giving Kevin the cold shoulder either, they have to get something done, but if this goes down badly--man, I don't want to think about it.

    Put it this way: Kevin Faulk is a New England Patriot!.

    You can't say that about many people.

    You're right, there was no drop off. I had assumed that at least McDaniels and Pioli would throw their hats into the ring, but if not, all the better.

    :agree:

    Faulk might not be as quick as he used to be but he gets the job done better than any other RB on the team, they better bring him back.

    I'd be surprised if he wasn't brought back.

    I agree.

    I do think that he was given a chence to see what he was worth on the open market before completing negotiations with him.

    Re: Kevin Faulk has no offers from anyone...

    The Patriots have allowed Kevin Faulk to go out as a Free Agent and see what he is worth on the open market. They are confident that he will come back and say "this is what I was offered". Problem is, nobody believes that Faulk will sign with them, therefore they are not going to help the Patriots by setting the market for them.

    Faulk is engrained in this community. He is a valuable 3rd down back. If you look at the numbers of plays he is on the field, its the most of all the RB's. His blocking is vastly underated and his pass catching is superb.

    I see Faulk coming back at a reasonable contract (2 years). He is a valuable member of this team.

    If so, I say Jack Corcoran from Rutgers.

    Some would say that if he were a lock, he'd be signed already.
