Former Jacksonville Jaguars kicker Josh Scobee has signed with the New Orleans Saints, according to reports from... well, himself.

Scobee was originally drafted by the Jaguars in the 2004 NFL Draft and has been one of the most consistent players on the team since his rookie season. He played 11 seasons for the Jaguars, kicking in 168 games and going 235-for-291 for an 80.8 kicking percentage. He was 26-for-42 from 50 yards or more.

He was traded to the Pittsburgh Steelers at the end of the 2015 preseason and when he struggled through the first four weeks, he was cut. He was a free agent for the rest of the 2015 season because of injury. Although the Jaguars called him for a tryout after his replacement, Jason Myers, struggled, he wasn't able to make it work.

Scobee is the 11th kicker in 11 years for the Saints.
