"That word (retirement) is not in my vocabulary right now," Faulk told the newspaper at a charity event Sunday. "If it's possible, if (the Patriots) allow me to, I'd like to play another season."
Asked about the knee, Faulk said: "Right now, I'm doing everything. Right now, I can't complain."
Faulk, who is a free agent, has long been one of the Patriots' best receivers out of the backfield and a reliable pass blocker. He has averaged at least 4.3 yards per carry and caught at least 37 passes in each full season he has played since 2006.
"People are telling me they drafted two running backs, but, hey, I've never questioned anything the Patriots have done. That's why they're who they are."
