Faulk still hoping Patriots call

QUINCY, Mass. -- Ask Kevin Faulk about his career, his future, and the response hasn't changed much since February. That's four months he's been hoping for the Patriots to call.

Still, he's able to keep it in perspective.

"I'm human; I get frustrated by it," the running back said Monday at Joe Andruzzi's fourth-annual charity golf tournament. "But at the same time, I'm just fortunate enough that I've been there long enough to understand the business and to know what goes on there and kind of understand a little bit of the thinking of what goes on there."

Faulk will continue to work out in the meantime.

With other teams? He insists he only has eyes for New England. If the Patriots don't bring him back for a 14th NFL season, Faulk said he's done with football.

"It's just one of those things that happens -- your career comes to an end at some point."
