Packers part ways with Corey Bojorquez, slash Randall Cobb’s salary

GREEN BAY – After general manager Brian Gutekunst acknowledged last month there would be “difficult decisions” to get under the 2022 salary cap, the lone highlight of the Green Bay Packers special teams last season became an example.

The Packers are not expected to re-sign free-agent punter Corey Bojorquez, a source confirmed to PackersNews. There was interest in a reunion after Bojorquez flashed his undisputable talent last season, but the Packers simply could not fit the punter into their salary-cap restraints.

The Packers did not release anyone Wednesday, according to the NFL’s transaction wire. That means they did some contract restructuring to get under their 2022 adjusted salary cap of $215.4 million before the 3 pm CDT deadline.

Receiver Randall Cobb’s salary was cut from around $8.5 million down to $3 million, according to a league source. The Packers also saved around $4.2 million by not submitting the contract of newly re-signed free-agent inside linebacker De’Vondre Campbell before the deadline.
