When free agency starts on Tuesday, John Kuhn will be one of the NFL players looking for a team to sign him.
Per Rob Demovsky of ESPN, a source says that the Packers will not offer Kuhn a contract before the new league year.
Kuhn is one of 17 players on the Packers' roster from last season due to become an unrestricted free agent. The 31-year-old was last a free agent following the 2010 season. After the NFL lockout of 2011, he re-signed with the Packers for $7 million over three years, including a $750,000 signing bonus.
Kuhn has made a name for himself in short yardage situations and in pass protection.
"I have to say he's probably the best pass protector, third-down back in the league as far as protection," Alex Van Pelt, who coached Packers running backs last season, said shortly after the season. "At certain points, you have a comfort level with John that's huge. That would be a hole we'd have to fill."
