Kuhn, 32, has spent eight of his nine NFL seasons in Green Bay. In 2014, he factored into the running game more than any other year since 2010, rushing 24 times for 85 yards and a touchdown. He also caught four passes for 23 yards and was selected to his second Pro Bowl.

Kuhn went undrafted out of Division-II Shippensburg University in 2005. He later signed with the Pittsburgh Steelers.
