Scobee Beats Deadline


Posted Jul 17, 2012


The Jaguars came to terms with their kicker on a four-year contract Monday afternoon.

Josh Scobee signed a four-year deal worth $3.45 million per season with the Jaguars on Monday (July 16).

Scobee is guaranteed $4.75 million, including a $1 million first-year salary and $3.75 million signing bonus.

The Jaguars locked up their veteran kicker with the franchise tag in February when the two sides were unable to reach a long-term agreement.

Scobee, 30, refused to sign the one-year franchise offer with a salary of $2.88 million, even though it was widely anticipated and said recently he would sit out training camp without a long-term deal.

Scobee converted 92 percent of his field-goal attempts in 2011 (23-of-25).
