Kuhn Continues to Wait to Hear from the Packers

The Packers are looking at what to do with their roster as they await the possible lockout at midnight Thursday, and as of now, one player that remains waiting to hear about his future with the Packers is popular RB John Kuhn.

John Kuhn may be a local legend in Green Bay, but that doesn’t mean he’s getting a long-term deal. The team hasn’t approached the prospective free agent about a new contract.

“Do I feel he’s an NFL running back? No,” agent Kevin Gold told Bob McGinn of the Milwaukee Journal-Sentinel. “But he was able to play that role. He was a cult hero.”

Kuhn will probably be slapped with a restricted free agent tender, even though he’s more likely to be an unrestricted free agent after the CBA smoke clears. Packers coach Mike McCarthy indicated at the Combine that James Starks and Ryan Grant would compete for carries next year.

“I’m not looking to run one guy into the ground,” McCarthy said.
