Green Bay fullback John Kuhn was named to the Pro Bowl on Tuesday by the NFL.

Kuhn will join Packers teammates Clay Matthews, Aaron Rodgers and guard Josh Sitton on the Pro Bowl roster.

Kuhn will be making his third career Pro Bowl, after also making the honors squad in 2011 and 2014. His three selections are tied with John Brockington (1971-73) and Cecil Isbell (1938, 1941-42) for the third-most all-time in Packers history. Fullback Jim Taylor was honored five times (1960-64) and tailback Ahman Green was honored four times (2001-04).

Kuhn is the first Green Bay fullback to be named to the Pro Bowl in back-to-back seasons since Taylor went to five straight. He has helped a Green Bay rushing attack that ranks 10th in the league this season (118.3 yards per game). Kuhn has appeared in every game this season, and it’s the ninth straight season in which he has played in at least 14 games.
