According to Tania Ganguli of the Florida Times Union, the Jaguars and kicker Josh Scobee have agreed to a long term deal. Just hours before the deadline Scobee is signed, avoiding playing the year under the franchise tag.
According to reports, the deal is worth four years. The deal pays Scobee $3.45 per year, with $4.75 guaranteed. Scobee's contract will rank second in the NFL in highest multi-year deal average, and third in the NFL in 2012 salary.
It was important to the franchise to have one of the more clutch kickers in the game locked up long term. Good job by both parties getting the deal done before the deadline.Tags: Football, Jacksonville, Jacksonville Jaguars, NFL
