The Jacksonville Jaguars will hit the practice fields again this week for another round of OTA's. The team has still not signed kicker Josh Scobee to a new contract and Scobee has refused to sign his franchise tender thus far. The Jaguars tried out two kickers during their rookie mini-camp, but neither stuck on the roster. According to Mark Long of the AP, the Jaguars will sign a kicker for OTA's this week.
Jaguars are planning to sign former Georgia PK Brandon Coutu for OTAs, so no contract for Josh Scobee— Mark Long (@APMarkLong) May 14, 2012
This obviously means that Josh Scobee won't be signing a contract this week, as Long indicates. Typically even during OTA's a team likes to have one or two kickers on the roster for simple practice sessions and special teams drills. I expect a long-term deal with Scobee will be worked out eventually, but it doesn't look like it be for this week's OTA sessions.
