Shortly after they reportedly matched the Raiders’ offer to bring back safety Sean Richardson, the Packers have re-signed another one of their own free agents. Agent Kevin Gold tells Rob Demovsky of ESPN.com (Twitter links) that his client, fullback John Kuhn has agreed to a new one-year deal with Green Bay. The contract is worth the minimum ($870K), but includes a workout bonus and a Pro Bowl incentive.
Kuhn, the Packers’ longtime fullback, is typically a blocking specialist, but continued to receive occasional touches during the 2014 season, particularly in short-yardage and goal-line situations. The 32-year-old recorded 85 yards and a touchdown on 24 rushing attempts last season, earning a Pro Bowl nod and a spot on the league’s All-Pro team.
Kuhn has rushed for at least one touchdown every year since 2008, combining for 21 total TDs on the ground or through the air during those seven seasons. His new deal figures to include up to $80K in workout bonuses, tweets Demovsky.
