Long-time Packers FB John Kuhn mentioned that although he would like to be back with the Packers next season, he’s prepared to test the free agent market this March.
“I’d love to stay in Green Bay,” Kuhn said, via Zach Buchanan of the Arizona Republic. “But at the same time, this is a profession where for us you’ve got to test the market when you’re a free agent. It’s the nature of the NFL.”
Green Bay always places a large emphasis on retaining their free agent players, but given that Kuhn plays a position of little market value in the current NFL and the fact that he’s already into his thirties, it appears as though there is a chance he could be playing for a new team in 2015.
The problem for Kuhn is that there is likely to be a number of younger free agent fullbacks available this year, which could limit his overall market.
Kuhn, 32, has spent the past eight seasons with the Packers and is finishing out his one-year, $1.03 million contract.
In 2014, Kuhn ran for 85 yards on 24 carries (3.5 YPC) to go along with four receptions and 23 yards receiving and one touchdown. Pro Football Focus has him rated as the No. 10 fullback out of 23 qualifying players.
