I’m sorry, all. I misread the text that I received that’s completely on me.
Rams trade punter Corey Bojorquez PLUS a 2023 seventh round pick to the Packers for a 2023 six-round pick.

The cost for the Green Bay Packers of acquiring a new punter from Los Angeles Rams is minimal.
According to Jourdan Rodrigue, The Athletic reports that the Packers are sending a sixth round pick in the 2023 Draft to the Rams in exchange for punter Corey Bojorquez. A seventh-round selection in the 2023 Draft is also being sent by the Packers.
Essentially, the Packers are turning their sixth-round pick in 2023 into a seventh-round pick – a mostly inconsequential swap in terms of draft-pick value – in order to get Bojorquez, who was arguably the best punter in the NFL during the preseason.
Over three preseason games, Bojorquez averaged 51.9 yards (net and gross) and put four punts inside the 20-yard line. Pro Football Focus reports that Bojorquez’s 4. 81-second hangtime average was the best in the NFL.
Bojorquez will take over for JK Scott, a fifth round pick of the Packers in 2018. Scott had three inconsistent seasons as a punter.
Bojorquez has punted 165 times over 40 career NFL games, all with the Buffalo Bills between 2018 and 2020. He was the NFL’s leading punter in 2020..
