Jaguars waive PK Coutu after signing Scobee

A day after signing veteran place-kicker Josh Scobee to a

long-term contract, the Jacksonville Jaguars waived Brandon

Coutu.

The Jaguars signed Coutu in May, bringing him to serve as the

team’s kicker while negotiating with Scobee. The Jags used the

franchise tag on Scobee and signed him to a four-year, $14 million

deal Monday.

With Scobee under contract heading into training camp next week,

Jacksonville had little use for Coutu.

Coutu played in the regular-season finale last year for Buffalo

and converted three extra points. He missed his lone field-goal

attempt. Coutu also spent time with Seattle in 2008. He played

college ball at Georgia.
