The New Orleans Saints have signed veteran kicker Josh Scobee, the kicker announced on his Facebook page Friday morning.
Scobee, 33, spent 11 seasons in Jacksonville as the Jaguars' kicker, making more than 80 percent of his kicks in more than a decade for the Jaguars.
But Jacksonville traded Scobee to Pittsburgh at the end of training camp last year, setting off a difficult season for the veteran kicker.
Scobee missed four of his first 10 field-goal attempts in Pittsburgh, and after week four, the Steelers cut the veteran, opting to go with Chris Boswell instead.
A source told The Advocate that Scobee's signing won't impact the possibility of Kai Forbath, who made two game-winning kicks after being signed by the Saints midway through last year but finished 9 of 13 overall, returning to the Saints.
New Orleans' interest in a kicker has been obvious -- the Saints finished 31st in the NFL in field-goal percentage (69.2 percent) last season -- and Florida State's Roberto Aguayo confirmed at the NFL Combine that the Saints told him they were in the market for a kicker.
