The Jacksonville Jaguars would like to get kicker Josh Scobee locked into a long-term contract before the start of free agency on March 13. If the two sides can't come to a new deal, the franchise tag is an option which will pay the kicker roughly $2.9 million guaranteed for the season. The two sides have exchanged contract proposals, but there is a significant gap between the two according to a report by Tania Ganguli of the Florida Times-Union.
Contract talks between the Jaguars and kicker Josh Scobee's agent have progressed. The sides have exchanged contract proposals, but there is still a significant gap between what each side wants.
The two sides will still continue to negotiate until the franchise deadline, which is looming on March 5. Scobee is set to be an unrestricted free agent and the Jaguars don't want to let him slip away like they did with punter Adam Podlesh last season.
