  • Jordan Raanan reports that the Giants offered Kuhn a contract to return.

Kuhn said goodbye to the Giants on his Instagram account earlier in the day.

“I couldn’t be more happy about my time here and I’ll definitely miss that place with all the great people in this building. Good byes are never fun, even if they’re just a see you later. Thank you for everything you’ve done for me. It’s time to move on and I couldn’t be more excited where life is taking me next.
