As I've done in the past, I want to welcome Josh Scobee to the Bermuda Triangle for kickers. The New Orleans Saints added the veteran kicker, Scobee announced on his Facebook page.

No kicker was under contract for the Saints heading into 2016 before this move. Adding Scobee means the land of disappearing kickers may have consumed Kai Forbath.

It's not totally off the wall to re-sign Forbath to compete with Scobee for the starting job. But I would imagine the Saints would look for a younger kicker this offseason to compete with Scobee for the starting gig.


I mentioned this in the Kai Forbath thread but figured it wouldn't be seen as easily there. Looks like we'll have another kicking competition in training camp only for Payton to pick the wrong one!

Doesn't matter who our kicker is. If he doesn't make 100% of his kicks; people will be calling for his head.

Because you know kicker is the only position you must be perfect

Saints FO really need to consider drafting a competent kicker in 2016.

I'm serious.

Kickers are moving up the food chain on teams. I would also look at drafting one. What round? I say 7th. Almost every team passes them up even late. I also think Morestead needs to take a haircut on his salary, way to steep for a kicker to pin opponents back just to let our D to get walked on.

Great kicker in Jacksonville... Embarrassing in Pittsburgh. Career 80%.
