For the second time in less than three weeks, fullback John Kuhn has reportedly been released by the New Orleans Saints.
Sources have told both nola.com and theadvocate.com that the Dover High School graduate was released on Thursday, Sept. 22, so the Saints could open up a roster spot for defensive lineman Kendall Langsford, who agreed to a deal with team on Wednesday night.
Kuhn was also released by the Saints on Sept. 3, only to be re-signed by the team on Sept. 6. That same scenario could be played out again this week after some roster shuffling by the team.
However, Kuhn has seen only limited action for New Orleans, playing eight snaps in the team's opener and four snaps in the team's second game. This season, Kuhn has one rushing attempt for 2 yards and has not caught a pass. The Saints are 0-2.
Nola.com reported that, as a vested veteran, Kuhn won't be exposed to the waiver wire.
The 6-foot, 250-pound Kuhn is a 12-year NFL veteran. Over the years, he has mostly been used as a blocking back, outlet receiver and short-yardage runner.
