The Patriots signed punter Corey Bojorquez after he tried out at the team’s rookie minicamp over the weekend, Mike Reiss of ESPN reports.
The team had to make a corresponding move to get him on the roster.
It’s no secret that Bill Belichick likes left-footed punters, and Bojorquez is one, just like incumbent punter Ryan Allen. Bojorquez also has experience as a holder.
At New Mexico, Bojorquez averaged 45.1 yards per punt in his two-year career, including 47.3 last season. He had 31 punts of 50-plus yards, including four punts over 70 yards.
