Who Should Start: John Kuhn or Quinn Johnson?

The Green Bay Packers made a push to re-sign or extend some contracts before the lockout began, but one player they didn't re-sign was FB John Kuhn. Though they tendered him a contract as a restricted free agent, but, thanks to Wiedmann's help, the APC big board now lists him as an expected unrestricted free agent. While it appears the Packers want him back, they haven't prevented him from testing the open market.

2010 was an odd year for Kuhn because he was forced to play at lot at running back. With RB Ryan Grant expected to make a full recovery, and the emergence of RB James Starks, Kuhn should slide back into his role as a full back. But should he start?

The Packers had an odd rotation of sorts as FB Quinn Johnson's playing time changed from week-to-week depending on the matchup. Kuhn might have made enough of a name for himself in 2010 that he could find some interest as a free agent. Then the Packers would have to make a choice: slightly pay more to Kuhn or let Johnson move into a more prominent role.
