Jacksonville Jaguars kicker Josh Scobee has signed a four-year contract reportedly worth $13.8 million, making him one of the NFL's highest-paid kickers. Scobee signed the deal Monday, about two hours before the NFL's deadline to sign franchise players to long-term contracts. Had Scobee and the team not reached an agreement by 4 p.m., the veteran kicker likely would have signed a one-year tender worth $2.88 million. The Florida Times-Union reported Scobee's new deal to be worth $3.45 million annually, with $4.75 million guaranteed. Oakland's Sebastian Janikowski ($4 million annually) and Phil Dawson ($3.81 million) are the only kickers scheduled to make more than Scobee in 2012. His new deal tops recent ones signed by Tampa Bay's Connor Barth ($3.3 million) and Denver's Matt Prater ($3.25 million).
