BOSTON (CBS) — While one franchise legend is happily accepting getting voted into the Patriots Hall of Fame, another is holding out hope for one more year on the team.

Kevin Faulk, a 13-year veteran and longtime teammate of the team’s newest Hall of Famer Troy Brown, still has faith he’ll be able to play one more season with the Patriots.

“I hope so,” Faulk told the Boston Herald’s Jeff Howe. “I’m still praying, hoping. If it doesn’t happen, hey, I had a long run. God has blessed me with a long career as a running back, as a football player in general. But if it doesn’t happen, hey, I’m moving on.”

Faulk appeared in just seven games last season after missing most of the 2010 season with a torn knee. He did not dress for the Super Bowl last year and is currently without a contract. Despite his service to the organization for more than a decade, a contract offer is no guarantee, as the team currently has Stevan Ridley, Shane Vereen, Danny Woodhead, Joseph Addai and others to fill the job this season.

“If I had my way, I’d want them to call right now,” Faulk told Howe. “I’m just waiting, trying to be patient. That’s about it.”
