Josh Scobee, Jaguars Aren't Talking About A New Contract

The deadline for players that were franchised tagged to sign a new long term deal is quickly approaching. Jacksonville Jaguars kicker Josh Scobee has recently said that there hasn't been any constructive progress in negotiations for a long term deal, according to an article on Pro Football Talk by Josh Alper.

The Jaguars slapped the franchise tag on Scobee in February and both sides have said quite frequently that they are interested in making a deal that runs beyond 2012. Despite that interest, there was no movement toward a deal in May and there's still no movement less than a month before the deadline to sign a franchised player to a multi-year deal.

In the same article, Alper acknowledges a report by Tania Ganguli of the Florida Times-Union that Scobee is looking for a deal similar to the one Tampa Bay Buccaneers kicker Connor Barth got right after being franchise tagged. Barth signed a four-year deal with Tampa Bay worth $3.3 million per year with $4 million guaranteed. If Scobee plays this year under the franchise tag, he will earn $2.88 million.
