The Jacksonville Jaguars have two players who are looking for new contracts and one of them is kicker Josh Scobee. Scobee was hit with the franchise tag this offseason, but he has yet to sign the tender as he's looking for a new long term contract. It doesn't appear that a long term deal is coming any time soon, as the two sides haven't spoken "in months."
"Josh has asked me not to discuss specifics of negotiations other than what has already been said," agent Ken Harris told the Florida Times-Union. "That is, we had some talks early on involving proposals from both sides, but haven't heard back from them in months. We know our last proposal is very fair."
The two sides have until July 16 to work a long term deal, else Scobee is limited to the one-year deal. Scobee can sign $2.88 million franchise tender by the end of the preseason and still be good to go for the regular season
