By  | 

GREEN BAY, Wis. (WSAW) -- The Green Bay Packers say former fullback John Kuhn will retire with the Packers.

“John was a terrific football player and tremendous teammate who contributed to many years of success for the Packers,” General Manager Brian Gutekunst said via a Packers press release.

Kuhn played with Packers from 2007 to 2015.

Kuhn played in the second most regular-season games in team history among running backs/fullbacks behind only FB William Henderson.

Kuhn originally started his career with the Pittsburgh Steelers. Kuhn finished his career playing two seasons (2016-17) with the New Orleans Saints.

During his time with the Packers, Kuhn was named to the Pro Bowl three times in 2011, 2014 and 2015.

The York, Pa., native was a member of Green Bay offenses that ranked in the top 10 in points eight times and the top 10 in yards seven times. He blocked for a 1,000-yard rusher four times. As a ball carrier, Kuhn rushed for 601 yards on 196 attempts (3.1 avg.) with 15 touchdowns. He also recorded 81 receptions for 557 yards (6.9 avg.) and eight TDs. In the postseason, Kuhn rushed for four TDs (tied for No. 2 in Packers' franchise history) and caught three TDs, giving him the second-most postseason TDs (seven) in the history of the Packers.
