Josh Scobee Is The Latest Kicker To Receive Franchise Tag

The Jacksonville Jaguars have used their franchise tag on kicker Josh Scobee, according to a report by Tania Ganguli of the Florida Times-Union.

The move to tag Scobee was expected by most in the Jacksonville media and will pay Scobee a projected $2.9 million for the 2012 season if the two sides cannot come to terms on a long term deal by the July 15 deadline. The Jaguars had a few other players the team could have franchise tagged, such as defensive end Jeremy Mincey and safety Dwight Lowery, but it wouldn't have been very cost effective.

The $2.9 million guaranteed is likely around the same price the Jaguars would pay Scobee for the season under a new long term contract.
