Scobee's deal now puts him as the third-highest paid kicker in the NFL behind Oakland Raiders kicker Sebastian Janikowski and Cleveland Browns kicker Phil Dawson.
Now the Jaguars only have to worry about putting a deal together for running back Maurice Jones-Drew and then all the players that they need to have ready for the 2012 season will be under contract.
