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.
