Will there be a need to tell a confused colleague that they’re saying “Kuuuuuuuuuhn” and not booing this season?
John Kuhn believes there will be. The longtime Packers fullback has not landed a job for 2016 as camps get set to open around the league, but says he’s staying in shape and ready to roll because he expects to hear a call from a team before the summer is out.
“I’ve had 11 years in the NFL so far, so that’s good, but I’m not done,” Kuhn said on Sirius XM NFL Radio with Jim Miller and Pat Kirwan. “I work out four or five times a week and I’m putting in what I have to on the front end for expecting somebody to make my phone ring here at some point in time. If not this week, if not next week, sometime in August, somebody’s going to have a need for somebody who’s willing to come in, work hard, do some of the dirty work that not everybody does anymore.”
Kuhn said a return to the Packers or a job with a contender would be ideal, but knows that he can’t control which team might look in his direction. He also can’t control the overall trends of the NFL, although Kuhn said he thinks the variety of sub packages used by defenses has kept “a place in this game for running a two-back offense.”
