Rams | Faulk discusses future; retirement remains on the horizon

David Elfin, of the Washington Times, reports St. Louis Rams RB Marshall Faulk (knees) is strongly considering retirement. Faulk was a shadow of his former do-everything self last season, and at 33 his body isn't cooperating. "When you get to year 13, when you get a coaching change, you look at the bigger picture of things," Faulk said. "You say, 'Are we going to be playing for a championship?' If that doesn't seem possible, then you start thinking about other things." Faulk has missed all of the team's offseason activities after having arthroscopic surgery on both of his knees. "I don't know if you can say, 'Hey, knee, you've got to be ready by camp,'?" said Faulk, whose recent marriage could also prompt him to walk away. "If that was the case, I'd have told it to be ready six months ago. I'm kind of a foreigner to my own body. I thought I knew this piece of work here. As you get a little older, you kind of become a little distant with your body. You wake up, and things don't feel the way they used to."
