The Facts: The Packers have re-signed Kuhn for a ninth season, according to his agent Kevin Gold. It's a one-year contract worth the veteran's minimum of $870,000, but includes workout and Pro Bowl bonuses.
Diehards Line: Kuhn, who'll turn 33 in September, is the second-longest tenured offensive player to quarterback Aaron Rodgers. He has played in 123 of a possible 128 regular-season games since claimed off waivers from Pittsburgh in 2007. He reaffirmed his value to the offense last season. He played sparingly at the start of the year before becoming an important facet of the offense in three-receiver, two-back packages down the stretch. Perhaps his biggest contribution came in the pistol formation that the offense started implementing after Rodgers tweaked a hamstring against Tampa Bay in Week 16. The Packers called on Kuhn to help protect the eventual NFL MVP, whose mobility was limited.
