Tonight I saw an article on the Green Bay Packers' official website saying that longtime fan-favorite fullback John Kuhn would be retiring as a Packer. It's not clear to me what that means.
John Kuhn did not play in the last NFL season and prior to that played a couple of years with the New Orleans Saints. The last team he played for was not the Packers. Nor does the article mention anything about him signing a 1-day contact with the team which I understand is something that happens occasionally. So what does it mean when the official team website says that he will be "retiring as a Packer"?
