Scobee was released by the Saints on Tuesday, Katherine Terrell reports.

EDGE Analysis

Scobee signed on with the Saints back in March but will once again be a free agent as it appears the team is confident heading forward with Kai Forbath as the lone kicker on the roster. The veteran Scobee will hope to find his way onto another team in search of some competition at kicker as training camps near.

The Saints have added Scobee to the mix, the New Orleans Times-Picayune reports.

EDGE Analysis

With Kai Forbath, who finished the 2015 season as the Saints' kicker, set to become an unrestricted free agent later this week, Scobee will be the only kicker under contract with the team. That said, the report suggests that the Saints plan to bring in some competition for Scobee, so he's hardly a lock to secure the team's kicking job for 2016.

Scobee has lost his job as the Steelers' kicker, Pro Football Talk's Michael David Smith reports.

EDGE Analysis

He missed two field goals in the fourth quarter Thursday and is 3-for-7 on field goals beyond 40 yards this year, so it is not surprising that the Steelers are making a change. Chris Boswell will sign with the team Saturday to become the new kicker.

Scobee connected on 2-of-4 field goals (36, 45) and 2-of-2 extra points in the Steelers' 23-20 overtime loss to Baltimore on Thursday.

EDGE Analysis

Scobee's two misses, from 41 and 49 yards, came on consecutive fourth quarter drives that would have forced the Ravens to score a touchdown, rather than the Justin Tucker field goal that sent the game to overtime. The misses also seemed to cause coach Mike Tomlin to lose faith in his kicker, opting to forego field goal attempts on two overtime possessions, both of which ended with failed fourth down attempts. Scobee is now 6-of-10 on field goal attempts and 6-of-7 on extra points. Even if the Steelers don't bring any other kickers in to compete for the job, Scobee is a risky fantasy play.

Scobee made 2-of-2 field goals (21, 41) in the Steelers' 12-6 win over the Rams Sunday.

EDGE Analysis

Pittsburgh continues to limit Scobee's scoring opportunities by attempting two-point conversions at a record pace. They were unsuccessful on their one attempt against St. Louis, and are now 3-for-4 through three games. By comparison, Scobee has converted 4-of-5 extra point attempts.

Scobee converted 3-of-4 extra points in the Steelers' 43-18 win over the 49ers Sunday.

EDGE Analysis

Although the Pittsburgh offense exploded, it gave Scobee few scoring chances. After scoring touchdowns on four of their first five drives, Pittsburgh opted to go for two point conversions on two of them. When they finally did give Scobee an opportunity he missed, hitting the upright. He did not attempt a field goal against San Francisco and, after missing two field goals in Week 1, fantasy owners may want to look elsewhere for a kicker.

Scobee connected on 2-of-4 field goals (24, 44) and made his lone extra point kick in the Steelers' 28-21 loss to New England.

EDGE Analysis

This was a mediocre outing for Scobee, who badley missed two other field goal attempts. While the Steelers' offense should continue to give him plenty of scoring opportunities, Scobee has already missed more field goals under 50 yards than Shaun Suisham did all of last season.

The Jags have traded Scobee to the Steelers, Ian Rapoport of NFL.com reports.

EDGE Analysis

The Steelers have been looking for a replacement for Shaun Suisham since he suffered a torn ACL in the Hall of Fame Game. Garrett Hartley, who was signed to fill the role, suffered a hamstring injury and is questionable for Week 1. Scobee leaves Jacksonville as the Jags' all-time leading scorer (1,022) points, and he'll likely provide stability for the Steelers despite a disappointing 76.9% success rate on field goal attempts in 2014.

Scobee converted 20-of-26 field goal attempts and all 23 extra point attempts in 2014.

Scobee has been a dependable kicker throughout his 11 years with the Jaguars, but his percentage dropped to 76.9 percent this season, his lowest since 2010. Scobee converted just 3-of-6 attempts from beyond 50 yards but was 14-of-16 between 30-49 yards. At this point, all signs point to him returning for a 12th season in Jacksonville.

Scobee converted both of his field goal attempts in Sunday's win over the Giants.

Scobee connected from 28 yards out in the second quarter and tacked on a 43-yarder to put the Jaguars ahead with less than 30 seconds remaining. The veteran is now 13-of-17 overall on the season.
