The player rep for unsigned Jaguars franchise player K Josh Scobee confirms the sides haven't had talks "in months."
The deadline to sign franchise players to long-term deals is July 16. "We know our last proposal is very fair," Scobee's agent said. "Josh and I will certainly discuss each of his options as July 16 approaches." Scobee's only "option" after July 16 will be to sign his $2.88 million tender. He'll be in camp.

Long-term contract talks between the Jaguars and franchise player K Josh Scobee have stalled.
Scobee received the non-exclusive franchise tag, but has yet to sign. A source tells the Florida Times Union that the four year, $16 million contract Sebastian Janikowski signed with Oakland two years ago is a reason for the stalled talks. Scobee nailed 92-percent of his field goals in 2011, which was third best in the NFL. Appropriately named Long Ding is the team's only kicker under contract.

Jaguars assigned the franchise tag to K Josh Scobee.
Scobee is the fourth kicker to be franchised this offseason. The Jaguars' kicker since being a fifth-round pick in 2004, Scobee's 92 percent field-goal percentage was third in the NFL last season. He is 15-of-22 on kicks of 50 yards or longer since 2008.

The Florida Times Union reports that there is a "significant gap" in contract aspirations between the Jaguars and free agent Josh Scobee.
The Jags can franchise tag Scobee if talks fall through, so they have the most leverage. Though both sides agree that staying in Jacksonville is Scobee's best option, he may be angling to become the NFL's highest paid kicker.

Josh Scobee (groin) is expected to kick for the Jaguars at Atlanta Thursday night.
The Jags have Brandon Coutu on the practice squad, but they hadn't promoted him to the active roster by late Thursday afternoon. Scobee isn't worth the risk in Jacksonville's low-scoring offense.

Josh Scobee strained his groin in warmups prior the Jaguars' Week 14 win over the Bucs.
Scobee was able to make all five of his extra points, but left kickoff duties up to linebacker Russell Allen in the fourth quarter. Scobee is obviously hands-off in fantasy thanks to the Jags' league-worst offense.
