It is being reported this afternoon across the interweb that the Green Bay Packers are parting ways with Shippenburg College’s favorite son John Kuhn.
The longtime Packers fans’ favorite fullback has been a great protector of Aaron Rodgers and an opener of holes for whomever was in the franchise’s backfield — Eddie Lacy and James Starks most recently.
Here is just one of the tweets sent out
It was just yesterday that reporters were writing that the Packers and Kuhn had a mutual interest in coming to the agreement before the team begins its spring workouts.
Then came the reports today that the Packers are moving on from Kuhn.
Regardless of which direction the Packers go, it could be a good decision. If they bring him back, Kuhn could serve as a mentor to second-year fullback Aaron Ripkowski. If they don’t bring Kuhn back, Ripkowski gets his chance.
While it appears the door has not completely closed, it seems like it’s open only a crack.
That said, let me say that I love John Kuhn. Both he and William Henderson have given the team two fullbacks over the course of the past two-plus decades who have pounded opposing linebackers into the ground and helped the franchise to many wins — including two Super Bowls.
The Kuhn era seems to be coming to an end.
Recently I wrote about why the Packers would be wise to finally part ways with Kuhn.
It. Is. Time … here’s why …
