The New Orleans Saints officially signed K Josh Scobee to a contract on Friday, according to the NFL Transactions release.
Veteran K Josh Scobee announced via his Facebook account that he’s signing a contract with the Saints on Friday.
Excited to announce that I’ve signed with the New Orleans Saints! Pumped for this opportunity!
Ian Rapoport reports that Scobee receives a one-year contract worth the minimum from the Saints.
Scobee, 33, was traded to the Steelers in a deal that sent a 2016 sixth-round pick to the Jaguars last year. This came after Pittsburgh placed K Shaun Suisham on season-ending injured reserve with a knee injury.
The Steelers ultimately elected to cut Scobee loose just over a month into the season and sign K Chris Boswell as his replacement.
In 2015, Scobee converted just 60 percent of his field goal attempts including 3 of 7 from 40 yards or more. He has also missed an extra point.
