After weeks of silence, Patriots RB **Kevin Faulk** is finally talking about his February drug charges.
Speaking at an event to promote his annual charity softball game, Faulk faced a few verbal fastballs from the media.
"I knew there were going to be a lot of questions as to why I didn't comment on it, but I was always taught actions speak louder than words, so my reaction was to just go and take a drug test. I didn't have to say anything after that," he replied.
"I asked him how he was doing, with the loss and the game and everything," he said. "He's just like me. You think about it for about a week or so, but at the same time you have to think about building the team up for this year. You can't think about last year right now."
Elsewhere,another mock draft shows the Patriots taking Troy cornerback **Leodis McKelvin** with the 7th overall pick in this month's NFL Draft.
Finally today, a Foxboro High school senior could make the Patriots this weekend ... the Patriots cheerleading squad, that is.
Eighteen-year-old Caitlin Davis, just months removed from cheering for the Foxboro High football team, could soon be doing so for Foxboro's pro football team. She was one of the youngest hopefuls who auditioned a month ago at "the spur of the moment."
"When I went to the [Patriots] games, the cheerleaders always caught my eye. And both my older sisters were cheerleaders, so it was kind of in the blood," Davis told the Sun Chronicle, a local newspaper whose coverage includes Foxboro.
She's made it down to the final 32 and will find out this weekend if she made the 24-girl roster.
