Should the Packers re-sign John Kuhn?

It's hard to believe, but yea, it's been three seasons since the Packers won the Super Bowl. And as you may recall, after they lifted that Lombardi Trophy in Dallas, they signed their breakout FB, John Kuhn, to a three-year deal. Well, now, as I just said, it's been three years, and Kuhn's a free agent. So, what should they do with him?

In my opinion, I don't see a reason why they shouldn't re-sign him. Sure, he struggled at times this year and only had one touchdown the entire regular season, but he seemed to convert the 3rd-and-shorts pretty often. So, since they apparently aren't planning on signing anyone anyway, why not just pick this guy up. He's productive.

I don't see any reason why TT would re-sign him. He's over 30, he's paid a lot of money relative to his position, and he doesn't fill up the box score. He looks like one of those guys (like offensive and defensive lineman) that TT finds replaceable and he moves onto the next one.

On the other hand, Kuhn has been a model of consistency over the past four seasons. He hasn't gotten into the end zone much over the last couple, but that was more a about a lack of opportunities. He's never been much of a lead blocker, but he's good in pass protection (see play against Peppers in Week 17 vs. Bears). If the Packers have been happy to pay him under his previous three-year contract, I don't see why they wouldn't want to extend that arrangement for another year.
