Faulk to return to Patriots

The New England Patriots have agreed to terms with running back

Kevin Faulk.

The versatile 11-year veteran has spent his entire career with

the Patriots, helping them win three Super Bowls.

He was an unrestricted free agent, but the team announced

Wednesday night on its Twitter page that he would be returning.

Terms of the deal were not disclosed.

The 33-year-old Faulk ran for 335 yards and caught 37 passes for

301 yards and scored three touchdowns last season.

Faulk has 3,505 yards rushing and 418 receptions for 3,605 yards

in his career and has also been a steady contributor returning

kicks and punts.
