Jaguars And Josh Scobee Restart Contract Talks

Jacksonville Jaguars kicker Josh Scobee yet to sign the franchise tag, which the Jaguars placed on him during NFL free agency. Under the tag, Scobee would make $2.88 million for the 2012 NFL season and the two sides have until July 16 to work out a long term deal.. The two sides have restarted contract talks however, according to a report by Vito Stellino of The Florida Times-Union.

Kicker Josh Scobee and the Jaguars have resumed contract talks according to a source familiar with the negotiations.

The two sides hadn't talked for months after the Jaguars put the franchise tag on him until they started up again recently in advance of the July 16 deadline.

There are some deals signed recently that the Jaguars and Scobee can frame a contract around. Denver Broncos kicker Matt Prater just recently signed a four-year $13 million deal while Tampa Bay Buccaneers kicker Connor Barth has a four-year $13.2 million deal. Barth does not handle kickoffs however, which is something Scobee excels at, so his side could argue for a bigger contract than Barth.
