John Kuhn could return to Packers for 2015

The "KUUUUUUHN" chant may rain down from the Lambeau Field bleachers for another year.

John Kuhn made the 2014 All-Pro team mostly due to the dearth of options at fullback. Still, the Green Bay Packers want the 32 year old back next season, per a report by Wes Hodkiewicz of the Green Bay Press-Gazette.

According to the report, Kuhn's agent Kevin Gold met with the Packers at the NFL Scouting Combine last week in Indianapolis and said there is "mutual interest" in a return. Though Kuhn received the fewest snaps since he was a part-time player in 2007, he remains a competent lead blocker and pass protector. As Green Bay does not employ a traditional fullback in their offense, a player with Kuhn's skillset still has worth to the team.

Kuhn's last contract, signed last offseason, paid the fullback just over $1 million in base salary, signing bonus, and other guarantees. He is the longest tenured member of the Packers' roster after Aaron Rodgers, A.J. Hawk, Jarrett Bush and Tramon Williams, and the oldest after Julius Peppers.
