Analysis: 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).

They placed the franchise tag on him Monday, a move that will keep the strong-legged veteran under contract for at least another season.
Analysis: General manager Gene Smith said the team wants to reach a long-term deal with Scobee. Both sides began preliminary talks last month, but they failed to reach an agreement before the franchise deadline Monday. "It is our goal to reach a long-term deal with him," Smith said in a statement. "Josh was drafted by the Jaguars and is someone that I have great respect for as a player and as a person."
