Fan-favorite Kuhn re-signs with Packers

– Lambeau Field faithful will be able to scream Kuuuuuuuuuhn! at the top of their lungs for at least another year.

Veteran fullback and local folk hero John Kuhn re-signed with Green Bay, general manager Ted Thompson said in a statement.

The one-year deal is expected to be worth just over $1 million, including signing, roster and workout bonuses, agent Kevin Gold said.

The 31-year-old Kuhn joined the Packers in 2007 when he was claimed off waivers from Pittsburgh. He’s played in 107 regular-season games with the Packers and he’s become a fan favorite. He’s also one of quarterback Aaron Rodgers’ closest friends on the team.
