Packers re-sign John Kuhn to one-year deal

John Kuhn AP

The Packers kept a key role player, and Packers fans got to keep one of their favorite chants.

According to Wes Hodkiewicz of the Green Bay Press-Gazette, the Packers have re-signed fullback John Kuhn to a one-year deal.

Kuhn, whose name has the kind of long-vowel sound that fans love to stretch out, added some value as the Packers began to run more last season.

He only touched the ball 23 times all year (10 runs, 13 catches), but he scored a touchdown, and helped as a lead blocker when Aaron Rodgers was down with injury.

    Great signing! This dude was awesome next to the Claymaker in that chunky soup commercial.

    Fine with the signing, just stop running so many dive plays with him!

    Got to see Kuhn play for Shippensburg U. back in the day. He was a monster, and has proven to be a solid pro.

    Go John Kuhn!

    Good for him! Now Kuhn has a shot at his 3rd Superbowl ring.

    Packer Free Agency plan is working to PERFECTION.

    That’s nice that the Packers were able to retain their team mascot.

    Like it matters. The Packers’ window is gone. Rodgers is trending down, and as long as the Seahawks dynasty is around they won’t win anything.

    That’s a steal compared to what Jacksonville just paid for a fullback.

    Remember that chip he got on Peppers last season, coming from the opposite side of the formation, that allow Rodgers to get around him and find Cobb for the TD? Packers don’t make the playoffs without that play from Kuhn

    … Seagulls Dynasty ??? … lol … Go Pack Go !!!

    “Rodgers is trending down”

    Hahaha….Good one.

    SEA has one more good year in them, and when they have to overpay for a QB that’s solid, but little more than a game manager, those defensive players that won the SB for them will leave for the $$$.

    I remember that, but to be fair, Peppers was a shadow of his former self.

  15. ariani1985 says: Apr 3, 2014 1:49 PM

    Remember the 15-1 season when he fumbled in his own red zone in the playoffs? I sure do!

  16. dwhcic says: Apr 3, 2014 1:53 PM

    Kuhn will never be the fullback that Jerome Felton is. SKOL!

  17. mvp43 says: Apr 3, 2014 2:33 PM

    Every good team has players that do the small things and fit well within the system…….. that’s John Kuhn. Not flashy by any means, but you can trust him to be in the right position, and that’s important to Aaron Rodgers.

  18. conormacleod says: Apr 3, 2014 2:34 PM

    Anything more than league minimum would be ridiculous. Literally any practice squad player could fill the production that he had. Although I did see one person talk about that one block he had last season.

    What’s the difference between Felton and Kuhn?

    One has rings and the others’ middle name is Jean-Marie!

  20. icebowler says: Apr 3, 2014 2:50 PM

    Now that Moreno is gone, Peyton is going to wish the Broncos had signed Kuhn.

  21. dethsupport says: Apr 3, 2014 2:59 PM

    What’s the difference between Felton and Kuhn?

    One is a TV star and the other just plays football.

  22. skinsfaninphilly says: Apr 3, 2014 3:21 PM

    Glad to see Kuhn staying around! Not a packers fan, but a Shipp alum who not only got to watch but call the games as we had Kuhn on offense & Brent Grimes on D..all while running out of the wing T that Rocky Reese ran & loved. #SU

    Mr Kuhn is one of the many players essential to a team that fantasy football ignores and can never appreciate.

    Every good team has a player or two like John Kuhn, hard working, self sacrificing, highly motivated, disciplined, ready to answer with a good play whenever called upon.

    Fans respect and love such a player far more than than any me first diva receiver will ever understand.

    The difference between Felton and Kuhn?

    Kuhn has 2 Superbowl rings, and a Chunky Soup commercial.

    Felton has no Superbowl rings, but did get a DUI at a McDonalds drive-thru.

    This is fairly typical comparison of Packer/Viking players.

    This guy is a stud….good signing. He is the best blitz picker-upper you could ask for, and knows the Packer system backwards and forwards. When he and Lacy are in the backfield and defenders have no idea which carrier is going to get the ball or if they will get it at all, it gives the Packers more options than teams will be able to accommodate.

  26. shaggytoodle says: Apr 3, 2014 4:43 PM

    The fullback is kind of a lost position now days.

    Not only is Kuhn a great FB he fits perfectly in the GB system decent hands makes some great blocks in the Passing and running game.

    Great to see him stay.

  27. packsoldier says: Apr 3, 2014 4:46 PM

    Nice. Love having that guy around.

  28. ct5081 says: Apr 3, 2014 5:23 PM

    You want physical… you got it. His blocking and running to daylight with power. Between Lacy and Kuhn you have thunder and lighting. And if that’s not enough, the rocket arm of Rogers… Come on Sea Birds take a look at our young offense and our in your face “D”…

  29. gbmickey says: Apr 3, 2014 5:26 PM

    Remember the 15-1 season when he fumbled in his own red zone in the playoffs? I sure do

    What I remember that season was another last place finish for the Vikings. Try coming with something better.

  30. speicher145 says: Apr 3, 2014 5:39 PM

    I met him at The Bar in Green Bay a few years back after they creamed Denver at home. Very down to earth dude. Awesome of him to celebrate the win with the fans!

  31. trapshoot says: Apr 3, 2014 8:17 PM

    One of the best citizens on the Packers. Great he’s staying around.

  32. zinjaboy says: Apr 3, 2014 9:11 PM

    Oh my gosh are we gonna be awesome this year. Kuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuhn!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  33. rho1953 says: Apr 3, 2014 9:35 PM

    The Seahawk “dynasty” is already over. The won’t repeat. The Packers will kick their asses when they play this fall.

  34. dgt178 says: Apr 4, 2014 10:26 AM

    …..great TEAM player…..wish we had more players like him…..glad to see him back….
