Former Rams and Colts RB Marshall Faulk was named to the Pro Football Hall of Fame on Saturday.
The engine of the Rams' "Greatest Show on Turf" teams, Faulk was an almost impossibly gifted back. A three-time All Pro and former Super Bowl champion and league MVP, he managed to rack up 6,875 receiving yards in addition to his 12,279 yards on the ground. His 19,172 all-purpose yards are sixth all time. There may never be another like him. Sat, Feb 5, 2011 07:39:00 PM

The NFL will announce the 2011 Hall of Fame class at 7:00 PM ET on Saturday.

Marshall Faulk, Jerome Bettis, Curtis Martin, Deion Sanders, and Willie Roaf represent the first time eligible finalists among the 15 total candidates. Sanders is a lock, while Faulk and Roaf have a decent shot at making it in on the first ballot. Some notable names among the other finalists are Tim Brown, Andre Reed, and Shannon Sharpe.

The NFL announced 15 finalists for the Hall of Fame, with Marshall Faulk, Jerome Bettis, Curtis Martin, Deion Sanders, and Willie Roaf representing the first time eligible finalists.

Sanders is the only lock to get in on the first ballot, while Faulk and Roaf are certain to make it at some point, if not now. Martin and Bettis will be on the outside looking in on the first go around, but we wouldn't be shocked if either gets elected eventually.

NFL Network analyst Marshall Faulk was wishy-washy when asked about an ESPN report that he wants to be the next head coach of the Rams.

Faulk initially denied the report to Bernie Miklasz of the St. Louis Post-Dispatch, then later indicated he'd consider it if the Rams could get Wade Phillips to run the defense and Mike Martz as offensive coordinator. Who wouldn't get paid millions to let others do all the work? An NFL front office job would be a much more suitable target for Faulk at this stage.

ESPN's Chris Mortensen reports that Marshall Faulk "legitimately" wants a chance to be the Rams' next head coach.

Faulk, currently an NFL Network analyst, turns 36 in February. He's pretty good in his current role, but it could turn into a circus act if the Rams really considered hiring him. He has no coaching experience at any level and his relationship with the face of the Rams' franchise (Steven Jackson) is lacking. The Rams need to go in full rebuilding mode after this season with an experienced coordinator or recycled head coach.

Marshall Faulk officially handed in his retirement papers Tuesday.

His scheduled salary of $820,000 no longer counts against the Rams' cap.

Marshall Faulk has decided to retire.

One of the greatest. Faulk was productive as a Colt, but his marriage with Mike Martz and the Rams Greatest Show on Turf produced some of the best running back seasons of all time. He finished with over 2,100 total yards for four straight years from 1998-2001, scoring 20 times in the last two. He was a top-five overall fantasy player during that time. He retires fourth on the all-time yards from scrimmage and rush/receiving touchdown list.

Marshall Faulk is due a $225,000 roster bonus at the end of next week.

Faulk's deal was redone again last July, altering his base salaries but still costing the Rams $4 million even if he retires, which they expect to happen. It's uncertain whether cutting Faulk would cause a cap hit.

The Rams have made it clear they don't want Marshall Faulk as Steven Jackson's backup next season.

Faulk has made some noise about returning to football, but appears more likely to retire.
Sun, Feb 25, 2007 12:46:00 PM

The Rams reportedly expect Marshall Faulk to retire.

His public statements have indicated Faulk will try to return for one more year, but he's said he'll only play for St. Louis and the Rams don't seem to want him back. Faulk has been reported to have interest in a front-office job with the Rams and bringing an AFL team to the Gateway City, which might indicate he understands his playing days are done.

Marshall Faulk told the St. Louis Post-Dispatch that he'd be interested in a front-office position with the Rams.

Faulk, who also has reported interest in buying an AFL team and bringing it to St. Louis, says he'd be willing to work his way up to the GM level.

A source close to Marshall Faulk reportedly told MLive.com that Faulk is unlikely to resume his career in football.

Faulk's knees are believed to be "shot." It won't be shocking if Faulk doesn't return to the game, but he seems prepared to give it a try.

Marshall Faulk reiterated his desire to return to the Rams, not another team, in an interview with the St. Louis Post-Dispatch.

Faulk is ready to play again, but St. Louis might not want him back. It would also be better for the Rams to get his contract off the books.

MLive.com does not believe Marshall Faulk will be a Lion in 2007.

Faulk first must show he's recovered from multiple knee surgeries, then force the Rams to release his rights. We can't see Mike Martz not considering a healthy Faulk, but if he doesn't, Marshall could land in Buffalo. Offensive coordinator Steve Fairchild knows him from St. Louis.

Marshall Faulk (injured reserve, knee surgeries) plans to force the Rams into releasing his rights after the season.

He won't need to do much forcing. St. Louis is ready to let Faulk go and get his future cap numbers off the books. Detroit is the most obvious destination for Faulk to land, but Buffalo with offensive coordinator Steve Fairchild is another possible landing spot. Faulk could be the third-down back to Willis McGahee if the Bills have had enough of Anthony Thomas.
