The #Jaguars are trading longtime kicker Josh Scobee to the #Steelers. He’s been their kicker since 2004. Pitt had a K injury.

@Jason_OTC
#Steelers will take on $3.5M in salary for Josh Scobee. Thats a lot for a position you can often find a minimum salary vet

I think it's for a 7th round pick.

He's a very good kicker.

That's a lot of salary to take on.

I checked his contract. This is his last year of the $3.5M.
https://www.google.com/url?sa=t&rct=j&q=&esrc=s&source=web&cd=6&cad=rja&uact=8&ved=0CEAQFjAFahUKEwjL8tDxyNPHAhVMcz4KHVkwCJA&url=http%3A%2F%2Foverthecap.com%2Fplayer%2Fjosh-scobee%2F941&ei=uWnkVYuyBMzm-QHZ4KCACQ&usg=AFQjCNHRrEc6L_jC2FSaT-3eJAm2Rfe7bA

His FG% last year was at roughly 75%, with a long of 53.http://www.nfl.com/player/joshscobee/2506063/profile

Yeah, so much for getting any contract extensions done this year. I guess they will have to negotiate with guys next season when Scobee and others contracts are off the books. Would like to see them give contracts to Boykin, DeCastro, Bell and Beachum...although Beach may be worth more on the market than the Steelers will pay.

Am I right that Woodley counts for over $8 million this year , but nothing next season?

$8.5M. See link below and look on the right side (halfway down) for the dead money guys.

Yes you're right.

We should have a good amount of cap space next year.

Scobee is restructuring his contact.

So they are not signing him for $3.4 million

So Suisham is still signed for the next 3 years, but will be coming off an ACL injury. It is what it is, but I really hope we aren't carrying any "dead money" on the cap for a kicker.

I like the Scooby signing. Its fun messing with his name. :)

I was hoping they would sign Fred Jackson - as we are one injury away from playing Josh Harris or Dri Archer in games 1 and 2

the pick 4 Boykins will likely turn into a fourth.

For scobee, the steelers and jaguars will split his salary and cap hit this year. 1.7 mil is much easier to stomach.

I don't see anything to complain about. He's a great kicker. He'll probably contribute more this year than the late round pick ever would have. He's only signed this year so there's no reason to care about his cap hit as long as he fits under.

This is a good move. They didn't really have much choice.

Scobie is a great kicker, and he has a very strong leg. He is great for kickoffs and field goals. I'm happy with the move. On NFL Live on ESPN, they said he is also 6 for 7 in his career at Heinz Field.

I completely agree. If we end up picking up a kicker that some other team discarded as part of their last cuts and he did poorly - we would be criticized as not making an effort.

With Scobee - we got the best kicker available and I think if we are thinking of going far this year - we have to think this way. It cost us but you get what you pay for.

This was a good move and Imo needed to be made.

Losing McCain could give us a 6th round pick for next years draft. The FO knows what they are doing.


And btw I won't rule out if they extend him so he'll be at camp next year. Might not sound likely but not ruling it out.
