Kuhn re-signs for 1 year with Packers

GREEN BAY, Wis. (AP) -- Veteran fullback John Kuhn has re-signed with the Green Bay Packers, coming to terms on a one-year deal, agent Kevin Gold says Thursday.

The deal is expected to be worth just over $1 million.

Kuhn, 31, joined the Packers in 2007 when he was claimed off waivers from Pittsburgh. He's played in 107 regular-season games as a Packer and has become a fan favorite for his workingman's approach to the game. He's also one of quarterback Aaron Rodgers' closest friends on the team.

What role Kuhn will play next season is unclear. Packers coach Mike McCarthy said last week he wants his running backs to be able to play all three downs.

Green Bay also has AP Offensive Rookie of the Year Eddie Lacy, James Starks, DuJuan Harris and Johnathan Franklin in the backfield.
