Kuhn Re-Signs With Pack

Green Bay, Wi (LEARFIELD-WSAU) Fullback John Kuhn will return to the Green Bay Packers for an eighth season, with a much smaller salary.  Media reports say he'll get the veterans' minimum of 855-thousand dollars for a one-year deal, plus bonuses which raise his total pay above a million dollars.

 Kuhn averaged two-and-a-half million per season in a three-year contract that just ended.

 Fullbacks are said to be a dying breed in the N-F-L, but the Packers still use a traditional fullback in many of their offensive sets.  Kuhn averaged 20 snaps a game last year, and he did not allow a quarterback pressure play.

 For his Green Bay career, Kuhn has 488 rushing yards, 478 receiving yards, and 20 touchdowns -- plus seven T-D's in the post-season.
