Kicker Josh Scobee and the Jaguars have resumed contract talks according to a source familiar with the negotiations. The two sides hadnt talked for months after the Jaguars put the franchise tag on him until they started up again recently in advance of the July 16 deadline. If Scobee doesnt get a long term deal by that date, he cant sign a long term deal until after the season and would have to play for his $2.88 million franchise number in 2012.

It is uncertain if he will show up for training camp if he doesnt get a long term deal but he has said he wont miss regular season games. Source: Florida Times-Union

Jacksonville Jaguars (2011 record: 5-11)
What went wrong?: Jacksonville lost the final three games of the 2010 season, breaking even at 8-8, and missing the postseason. Lamentably, had the Jags beaten Indianapolis in Week 15, Jacksonville would have won the AFC South outright. Instead, the Jaguars lost 34-24, and the team from North Florida would lose out, while Indy won out....
