With kicker Josh Scobee not yet signing the franchise tag and with OTAs coming, the Jaguars needed a kicker. Because, well, they didn’t have one under contract.
Now they do.
Brandon Coutu, a seventh-round pick of the Seahawks in 2008, has joined the team.
Coutu was out of football in 2009 and 2010 before having a thimble of coffee with the Jags and two other teams in 2011.
The Jaguars and Scobee have made no progress toward a long-term deal.
