Josh Scobee and the Jags Continue to Be Apart on a New Deal

The Jags have an issue, that’s trying to get kicker Josh Scobee to get a deal done to get to camp.

“It’s been a long, frustrating offseason for me,” Scobee said in a phone interview with the Florida-Times Union. “To get to sit back and not be at practice with my team and do things on my own, it’s been very weird to tell you the truth, I feel disconnected from my team in a sense, and anxious to see guys on the field and meet some of my new teammates.”

Scobee has the franchise tag on him right now, which isn’t all that bad because it would mean he would make about $2.88 million.

The two sides have been unable to get a deal done, and because of it the kicker hasn’t shown up to any offseason programs for the young Jags.

“I just don’t see a point in showing any good faith to the team if they’re not going to negotiate,” he said. “There’s no reason for me to show up on my good faith being that I’m the player, I’m the employee, when they choose not to speak. I don’t expect them to reward bad behavior and I won’t reward them with the behavior that they’re treating me with.”

Right now, the kicker says he isn’t sure he will be at training camp, but won’t be missing any regular season games.

“I don’t see that as being an option,” Scobee said. “I don’t want to miss games or anything like that. That’s just not me, that’s not me as a person. I’m not going to sit out or anything like that. … I don’t want anybody doing my job. That’s been my job for the last 8 years.”
