JACKSONVILLE, FLA. -- Former K Josh Scobee, the franchise's all-time leading scorer with 1,022 career points, will sign a one-day contract to retire as a member of the Jacksonville Jaguars on Thursday, April 13 at 1 p.m. ET in the team meeting room at EverBank Field.

Scobee was drafted by Jacksonville in the fifth round of the 2004 NFL Draft. He appeared in 168 games for the organization, the third-most in franchise history, from 2004-14. Scobee's 11 seasons with the Jaguars are tied for the second-most in club annals, trailing only Brad Meester's 14 seasons (2000-13). Scobee was an eight-time winner of the AFC Special Teams Player of the Week award, the most by a player of any weekly AFC award in franchise history.

Scobee is the only player in Jaguars history to make a field goal in 13 or more consecutive games, a feat that he achieved twice in his career; his 15 consecutive games with a made FG is a franchise record. Scobee and former K Mike Hollis are the only kickers in franchise history to make 20 consecutive FGs, a streak Scobee accomplished from Nov. 27, 2011 through Nov. 4, 2012. Scobee's 59-yard game-winning FG on Oct. 3, 2010, vs. Indianapolis, is still the longest made FG in franchise history. Scobee owns three of the top seven spots for longest FGs in franchise history (59-longest, 55-tied for fourth-longest, 54-tied for fifth-longest).

Scobee made 235 of 291 career FG attempts (80.8%) with the Jaguars and his 235 career made FGs are the most in franchise history. Scobee's 317 extra points are also the most in franchise history, while his 98.4 PAT pct. (317 of 322) ranks third in franchise history for kickers with a minimum of 25 PATs. Scobee registered 100-plus points in three of his 11 seasons with the franchise.

Scobee was traded by the Jaguars to the Pittsburgh Steelers on August 31, 2015.
