Saints signed K Josh Scobee to a one-year contract.

Scobee was traded by the Jaguars to the Steelers last August, but missed a pair of field goals in the season opener and then two more fourth-quarter kicks in October before he was cut. He'll compete for the Saints' job in camp.
Mar 4 - 9:29 AM

The Buccaneers worked out four kickers this week including Josh Scobee.

The others were Nate Freese, Mike Meyer and Cameron Starke. We last saw Scobee in Pittsburgh where he made 6-of-10 field goals before getting cut. Connor Barth finished the year as Tampa Bay's kicker but clearly the Bucs are open to other options.
Feb 12 - 3:32 PM

Steelers released K Josh Scobee.

Scobee gets cut after missing two fourth-quarter field goals in Thursday night's loss to the Ravens. Scobee has struggled all season, converting only 60 percent of his attempts. Pittsburgh has one of the worst kicker situations in the league. Chris Boswell was signed as Scobee's replacement.

Steelers coach Mike Tomlin said he has no concerns with K Josh Scobee.

Scobee missed two field goals in the season opener and failed to convert a PAT against the 49ers. Despite the misses, it sounds like Scobee's job is safe. As long as he is the kicker for the high-powered Steelers' offense he will be worth starting.

Steelers acquired K Josh Scobee from the Jaguars in exchange for a sixth-round pick in the 2016 NFL draft.

With Garrett Hartley suffering a potentially serious injury in the third preseason game, the Steelers needed to add another option. They also lost Shaun Suisham to a torn ACL in the exhibition opener. Scobee has been the Jaguars' kicker since 2004. Jason Myers should take over the kicking duties in Jacksonville, while Scobee suddenly becomes fantasy relevant in Pittsburgh.

Ryan O'Halloran of the Florida Times Union believes the Jaguars could be open to trading one of their two kickers.

The Jaguars are unlikely to keep both Josh Scobee and Jason Meyers when the roster shrinks from 75 to 53 in a few days. Both players have had good preseasons and could be swapped for late-round picks. The Steelers could be interested in acquiring a fresh leg. Shaun Suisham went down with a torn ACL in his first preseason game while Garrett Hartley is nursing a hamstring injury.

Jaguars agreed to terms with franchise player K Josh Scobee on a four-year, $13.8 million contract.

Scobee's $3.45 million annual salary and $4.75 million in guarantees exceed the totals of Matt Prater and Connor Barth, who were also franchise-tagged. In addition to an NFL-high 71-yard average on kickoffs, Scobee drilled 92 percent of his field-goal attempts in 2011, including an impressive 5-of-6 over 50 yards. Jacksonville's kicker since 2004, Scobee was the offense's most valuable weapon behind Maurice Jones-Drew last season.

The Jaguars continued negotiations with unsigned franchise player Josh Scobee over the weekend.

The two sides have been steadily talking for two weeks now as Monday's 4 p.m. ET deadline approaches. Scobee is likely seeking something in the range of Matt Prater's recent four-year, $13 million contract with the Broncos. If no deal is hammered out, Scobee will kick for $2.88 million on a one-year franchise tag.

The Jaguars have resumed contract talks with unsigned franchise player Josh Scobee.

Scobee's agent said in late June that the sides hadn't spoken in "months," so the Jags now appear to be operating with urgency 12 days before the deadline for franchise players to sign long-term deals. Matt Prater's recent four-year, $13 million contract has given the sides a baseline from which to work. Prater's deal included $4.25 million guaranteed with a $3 million signing bonus.

Unsigned franchise player Josh Scobee suggested a training-camp holdout is possible after the Jaguars cut off contract talks in April.

Scobee is just blowing off steam because he doesn't believe the organization is negotiating in good faith. Although he's not sure if he will attend camp, Scobee concedes that missing regular-season action isn't a viable option. Like all franchise players, he has zero leverage.

The player rep for unsigned Jaguars franchise player K Josh Scobee confirms the sides haven't had talks "in months."

The deadline to sign franchise players to long-term deals is July 16. "We know our last proposal is very fair," Scobee's agent said. "Josh and I will certainly discuss each of his options as July 16 approaches." Scobee's only "option" after July 16 will be to sign his $2.88 million tender. He'll be in camp.

The Jaguars haven't spoken with unsigned franchise player K Josh Scobee for "months."

"We tried to, relative to the market, be fair with our players and we'll continue to work to get a long-term deal done," said GM Gene Smith. "... "I anticipate him kicking for us this season and hopefully that's the case in the future."
Wed, Jun 20, 2012 03:09:00 PM

Long-term contract talks between the Jaguars and franchise player K Josh Scobee have stalled.

Scobee received the non-exclusive franchise tag, but has yet to sign. A source tells the Florida Times Union that the four-year, $16 million contract Sebastian Janikowski signed with Oakland two years ago is a reason for stalled talks. Scobee nailed 92 percent of his field goals in 2011, which was third best in the NFL.
Sun, May 6, 2012 11:20:00 AM

Jaguars assigned the franchise tag to K Josh Scobee.

Scobee is the fourth kicker to be franchised this offseason, but reportedly has "no plans to sign the tender." The Florida Times-Union reported in late February there was a "significant gap" between Scobee and the Jags in long-term talks. The Jaguars' kicker since being a fifth-round pick in 2004, Scobee's 92 field-goal percentage was third in the NFL last season.
