Scobee will retire on April 13 after signing a one-day contract with the Jaguars.
Scobee is Jacksonville's all-time scoring leader with 1,022 points, which he accumulated from 2002-14. The 34-year-old was traded to the Steelers in 2015, only to be released after performing poorly through his first four games. Although Scobee hasn't played since then, he'll get to end his career in fitting fashion with the Jaguars next month.
Scobee was released by the Saints on Tuesday, Katherine Terrell of the Times-Picayune reports.
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.
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.
Kicker Josh Scobee has lost his job as the Steelers' kicker, Pro Football Talk's Michael David Smith reports.
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.
Steelers kicker Josh Scobee connected on 2 of 4 field goals (36, 45) and 2 of 2 extra points in the 23-20 overtime loss to Baltimore on Thursday.
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.
Steelers kicker Josh Scobee made 2 of 2 field goals (21, 41) in the Steelers' 12-6 win over the Rams Sunday.
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.
Steelers kicker Josh Scobee converted 3 of 4 extra points in the Steelers' 43-18 win over the 49ers Sunday.
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.
Kicker has been a trouble spot for the Steelers this preseason, and with their second player going down at the position, the team reached a deal with the Jaguars to acquire veteran Josh Scobee.
