Jaguars kicker Josh Sobee will stay in Jacksonville for at least another year.
The Jaguars have placed the franchise tag on Scobee, as first reported by Tania Ganguli of the Florida Times-Union.
Scobee has said previously that he doesn’t want to be franchised, and Ganguli reports that he has no plans to sign the one-year franchise tender, which for kickers is expected to be a one-year guaranteed salary of about $2.6 million.
So Scobee will hope to sign a long-term deal, and the Jaguars may go through the offseason without Scobee locked down. The reality, however, is that it’s highly likely that if Scobee doesn’t sign a long-term deal, he’ll eventually sign the tender in time to be there Week One. And a steady kicker like Scobee, who went 23-of-25 on field goals last season, should be able to miss training camp and step in at the start of the season without missing a beat.
