Former Green Bay fullback John Kuhn retiring with Packers

GREEN BAY, Wis. (CBS 58) -- Former Packers fullback John Kuhn has decided to retire with the Packers. Kuhn played nine seasons in Green Bay from 2007 to 2015. 

Kuhn started his career with the Pittsburgh Steelers as an undrafted free agent in 2005 before being claimed off waivers by the Packers in 2007. During his nine seasons with Green Bay, he played in 139 regular-season games with 32 starts as well as 15 postseason contests with five starts. Kuhn played in the second most regular-season games in team history among running backs/fullbacks behind only FB William Henderson (188).

“John was a terrific football player and tremendous teammate who contributed to many years of success for the Packers,” Gutekunst said. “He was a true professional whose work ethic and leadership set a great example both on the field and in the locker room. We want to thank John and his family for all they did for the Packers and in the community as well as wish them nothing but the best.”

Kuhn was a key member of teams that won a Super Bowl (XLV) and five division titles, finished with 10-plus wins seven times and made the playoffs eight times.

Kuhn finished his career playing two seasons with the New Orleans Saints, where he appeared in 18 games with four starts and recorded five TDs.
