Jaguars Free Agency 2012: Josh Scobee, Jeremy Mincey Could Receive Franchise Tag

Monday is the first day that NFL teams can put a franchise tag on their players, ensuring that they will be on the roster next year while the team tries to figure out if they want to work out a long-term contract. The guys over at SB Nation have put together an article that lists the players for each team that are likely to get tagged, ranked by the likelihood that it happens. They think that Josh Scobee is the man for the Jaguars.

Josh Scobee. The franchise tag number on a kicker is a little over two and a half million bucks, which is (relatively) cheap, so expect Jacksonville to use the tag on their kicker. He's a solid kicker who the Jags want to bring back. Jeremy Mincey is a dark-horse candidate for the franchise tag as well.

Scobee is a pretty good player, and it is good for the Jaguars that there isn't someone who deserves a franchise tag that would pay them at a higher grade. Although that doesn't speak well about the state of the roster when the kicker is the most prized free agent.
