Packers sign former Bears punter Pat O’Donnell; EQ bound for Chicago

Punter Pat O'Donnell has been with the Bears since 2014.

GREEN BAY — A day after dropping punter Corey Bojorquez, the Green Bay Packers replaced him with former Chicago Bears punter Pat O’Donnell.

According to NFL Network, the Packers have agreed to terms with O’Donnell, who has been the Bears’ punter for the past eight seasons. A source said it was a two-year deal worth $4 million.

The Packers opted not to re-sign Bojorquez, who was an unrestricted free agent, because his performance plummeted in cold weather and his kicking ability was part of the reason kicker Mason Crosby struggled.

Three other teams were in the running for O’Donnell, including the Bears, according to a source. But the Packers seemed determined to have him be their punter this year and made a strong push
