The Jacksonville Jaguars placed their franchise tag on unrestricted free agent kicker Josh Scobee weeks ago, and on Monday afternoon agreed to a long-term contract extension. The team and Scobee had until 4 p.m. ET on Monday July 16 to finalize a long-term deal, else the kicker would be forced to play the entire 2012 season on a one-year deal worth nearly $3 million guaranteed.

With two other kickers in Tampa Bay Buccaneers Connor Barth and Atlanta Falcons kicker - - signing long-term deals, the template was in place for the Jaguars and Scobee. Scobee and the team were able to work out a 4-year deal worth $13.8 million with $4.75 million guaranteed.

With Scobee's contract now out of the way, the team and Scobee can move forward and get prepared for the 2012 NFL Season without something hanging over their heads. Scobee was originally drafted by the Jaguars in fifth-round of the 2003 NFL Draft and has spent his entire season of his career with the franchise.
