No contract in the Cards for Kuhn

The fullback, a restricted free agent, just wrapped up a meeting with Arizona and has another set up. Also, see what agent Kevin Gold says about the Packers' free agent search.

The agent for restricted free agent John Kuhn said no offers came from the fullback's meeting with the Arizona Cardinals.

Kuhn met with the Cardinals on Sunday and Monday. He's back home in Pennsylvania but has a meeting set with Cincinnati on Monday, agent Kevin Gold told Packer Report.

"The meeting with Arizona went well but there's no offers pending right now. I think we're in a wait-and-see type of approach," he said.

The Packers gave Kuhn the low tender of just over $1 million, meaning they can match any offer. If Kuhn received an offer that the Packers did not want to match, they would not receive compensation.

No restricted free agents have changed teams this offseason.

Kuhn, who just completed his third season, had a decent season. He played in all 16 games with three starts. He caught four passes, including two for touchdowns, and converted 4-of-5 third-and-1 runs. Plus, he tied for fifth on the team with 12 special teams tackles.

The Cardinals' fullback, Terrelle Smith, is an unrestricted free agent. Smith, 31, is one of the top blocking fullbacks in the league. Landing Kuhn would add youth, if Smith leaves, and would be an insurance policy should Smith land with a team that better fits his skills as a hard-nosed blocker.

Meanwhile, asked jokingly if he had any defensive ends for the Packers, Gold said: "I'm a Packer fan myself. They're one of my favorite teams because I had Rob Davis, I have John, I have (snapper) Brett Goode now. I agree. I wish I represented a few. I'd be glad to send them their way. With a new defense, we're going to need some help there. I have my fingers crossed, just like you guys do."
