Jaguars, Scobee Agree on 4-Year Deal

The Jaguars have finally finished their negotiating with kicker Josh Scobee, and not a moment too soon.  Mere hours before the 4:00 pm deadline, the team and its special teams leader reached a deal for four years.  Tania Ganguli of the Florida Times-Union confirmed the 4-year extension but has yet to confirm the financials.  From RotoWorld:

If the recent deals for Matt Prater and Connor Barth are any indication, Scobee should expect to receive roughly $13 million over the four years, with just over $4 million guaranteed. In addition to an NFL-high 71-yard average on kickoffs, Scobee drilled 92 percent of his field-goal attempts in 2011, including an impressive 5-of-6 over 50 yards. Jacksonville’s kicker since 2004, Scobee was the offense’s most valuable weapon behind Maurice Jones-Drew last season.

Thank the Lord!  We can finally get back to worrying about just how far Scobee can actually kick the ball (I’m thinking over 63 yards!!)
