Packers Re-Sign Fullback John Kuhn to One-Year Contract

Jonathan Daniel

The Packers are bringing the fan favorite back to Green Bay for another season.

The Green Bay Packers and Ted Thompson were faced with several tough decisions this off-season, with a staggering twenty players leaving the team with expiring contracts. One such player was fullback John Kuhn, the pass-blocking specialist and special teams contributor who has grown into a fan favorite among many Packers fans.

That decision has come, and Kuhn will be back in Green Bay donning the Green and Gold for his eighth season with the team:

Kuhn's contributions will always go beyond the box score. His role as a short-yardage back was dramatically reduced in 2013 with Eddie Lacy's emergence as a powerful running back. Still, Kuhn still managed to score a goal-line touchdown, catch 13 passes out of the backfield, and make his presence felt with a critical block on new Packer Julius Peppers at the end of the Bears game which allowed Aaron Rodgers to complete the game-winning touchdown pass to Randall Cobb.

As we expected, the market for Kuhn was not particularly strong, and it seems that no team valued his abilities more than the Packers. This can be clearly seen in this comment from Kuhn's agent:

The veteran has 20 career touchdowns as a Packer, 12 on the ground and 8 receiving scores. We welcome Kuhn back to Green Bay and look forward to another round of "KUUUUHHHHHNNNNN"s from the Lambeau Field faithful.

UPDATE: Kuhn's deal is expected to be pretty reasonable:
