Steelers kicker Josh Scobee said he has to move on after missing two field goals in the fourth quarter of Thursday night’s loss, but he may also have to move out.
The Steelers are trying out kickers, and CSNMidAtlantic.com reports that former Washington kicker Kai Forbath will try out in Pittsburgh. Forbath is the only kicker who has been identified by name as a candidate for the Steelers job, but they’ll surely be considering others.
Forbath had been in Washington since 2012 but was cut after missing a field goal in Week One this year.
Whether it’s Forbath or someone else, the Steelers have to get better at kicker, a position that has been a huge need since Shaun Suisham was hurt in the preseason. In the last three years, Suisham was 30-for-30 on field goal attempts of 40 to 49 yards. So far this season, Scobee is 3-for-7 from 40 to 49 yards. The Steelers can’t afford to let that go on much longer.
