Josh Scobee not sweating new contract with Jacksonville

BY foxsports • July 31, 2015

Veteran kicker Josh Scobee enters his 12th season with the Jacksonville Jaguars as the franchise's all-time leader in points and field goals. 

He's also in the final year of his contract and carries a cap number of $4.38 million. But the 33-year-old said he's more worried about making kicks than he is about where he'll be playing and how much he'll be making in 2016.

“I don’t think about that stuff,” Scobee said, via the Florida Times-Union. “Luckily, I know how to focus on the right things. If you’re focusing on (the contract), you’re not focused on the right things. I’ve been in contract years before and it’s not something, when I walk on the field, I’m thinking about. Being a kicker, you have to focus on the things you can control and kicking is the one thing I can control.”

Scobee, the longest-serving player on the Jacksonville roster, was 20-of-26 on field goal attempts and 23-of-23 on extra point tries last season.

“It’s an important year,” Scobee said. “Hopefully I’ll go out, have a great year and re-sign here for however long.”
