Wisconsin folk hero John Kuhn totally stuck it to the Green Bay Packers.
Kuhn, who now plays for the New Orleans Saints and has been on injured reserve since October, has spent his time with the team during the layoff learning about the coaching and scouting operations. Kuhn says he wants to play one more year, but would like to remain in football after his playing career.
So, it was one of those things they whisper about around the NFL. A player helps his current team game plan against his former team.
Kuhn was reportedly heavily involved in game planning when the Saints faced the Packers in week 7. The Saints won a 26-17 contest at Lambeau Field that the Packers had within their mitts.
“I wanted all of it because my clock is ticking in the NFL as a player, so I want to soak up every second that I have,” Kuhn said. “I feel like the best way to do that is to be involved and contribute in any way that you can.”
I’m sure every Packers fan would love to Kuhn continue on in football after his playing career. How else will they be able to yell “Kuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuhn?”
It will be interesting to see if the Packers give him a job.
Before that happens, it appears Kuhn will get another run at a Super Bowl as a player. The Saints are reportedly activating him from injured reserve. The team will likely be the fourth seed in the NFC.
So there’s your rooting interest, now that the Packers are goners.
