A Potential Falcons Free Agent: John Kuhn

I'll forgive you if you don't exactly dance a jig for John Kuhn.

We all know championship-caliber teams are usually deep ones, and the Falcons are looking at the possibility of heading into next season down two running backs. Jason Snelling is a free agent bound to draw interest on the open market, and Jerious Norwood is a free agent who hasn't been able to stay on the field the last couple of seasons. That would leave the Falcons with some combination of Michael Turner, Jacquizz Rodgers, Gartrell Johnson and a practice squadder.

If Big Snell does depart, why not pick up Kuhn? A decent short yardage runner from Brent Grimes' alma mater of Shippensburg, Kuhn is a superb blocker and a willing special teamer. It's not a signing that would light the world on fire, I recognize, but the Falcons don't mind carrying a few backs and Kuhn is so versatile he makes Mike Smith's heart flutter. I'd say that versatility is his calling card.

Given the likely cost of signing him, I think this could be a decent value pickup for the Falcons. The only thing stopping the Falcons is a desire to return to the Packers, but I think that could be overcome.

Kuhn, or no?
