John Kuhn is from York, Pa. Kuhn originally started his career with the Pittsburgh Steelers as an undrafted free agent out of Shippensburg (Pa.) University, spending time on the Steelers’ practice squad (2005) and active roster (nine games played in 2006) before being claimed off waivers by the Packers. John was a member of the 2005 Super Bowl Steelers team.
During his nine seasons with Green Bay, John Kuhn played in 139 regular-season games with 32 starts as well as 15 postseason contests with five starts. Kuhn played in the second-most regular-season games in team history among running backs/fullbacks behind only FB William Henderson.
Kuhn was a key member of teams that won a Super Bowl (XLV) and five division titles, finished with 10-plus wins seven times and made the playoffs eight times. He was named first-team All-Pro by The Associated Press in 2014, second-team All-Pro by AP in 2011 and was selected to the Pro Bowl three times (2011, 2014-15). He was the first Green Bay fullback to be named to the Pro Bowl in back-to-back seasons since Taylor went to five straight.
He blocked for a 1,000-yard rusher four times (Ryan Grant in 2008-09 and Eddie Lacy in 2013-14). 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 franchise history) and caught three TDs, giving him the second-most postseason TDs (seven) in the history of the Packers.
Kuhn finished his career playing two seasons (2016-17) with the New Orleans Saints, where he appeared in 18 games with four starts and recorded five TDs (four rushing and one receiving).
In 2013, he was inducted into the Shippensburg University athletic hall of fame by his long time friend, roommate, and 3rd string safety Kevin Boyle.
Kuhn became a fan favorite in Green Bay. Whenever Kuhn carried the ball, Packers’ fans called out his surname “Kuuuuuuhhhhhn,” which is sometimes mistaken for booing. This continued during his time as a New Orleans Saint. The chant originated at Shippensburg each time he touched the ball, but Kuhn gained national fame after scoring three touchdowns in week 16 of 2010.
Kuhn currently is a member of the Packers broadcast team and enjoys spending time with his family outside work. Book him for your next event today.
