Patriots sign former UNM punter Corey Bojorquez

The New England Patriots have signed former UNM punter Corey Bojorquez after he tried out for the team this past weekend, the defending AFC champions announced on Monday.

Bojorquez, a left-footed punter, is expected to challenge Patriots incumbent punter Ryan Allen, who also punts with his left foot.

Bojorquez averaged 45.1 yards per punt in his two years at UNM, including a 47.3 average last season. He had 31 punts of 50-plus yards, including four punts over 70 yards for the Lobos.

He originally signed with the Patriots as undrafted free agent after the NFL Draft. He attended Patriots rookie mini-camp on a tryout basis and New England is moving forward with plans to sign him to the 90-man roster, according to Mike Reiss of ESPN.

Bojorquez also has experience as a holder.
