The Jacksonville Jaguars have re-signed kicker Josh Scobee to a four-year deal, reports the Florida Times-Union.

Scobee's deal is worth $3.45 million per year with $4.75 million guaranteed. The guarantee consists of a $3.75 million signing bonus and a $1 million salary for 2012.

The Jaguars had until 4 p.m. Monday to come to an agreement with Scobee, which is deadline for teams to reach agreements with franchised players.  Scobee was to make $2.88 million for the 2012-2013 season before the deal was reached.

Scobee said recently that he may hold out of training camp if he didn't get a long-term deal by today.

Scobee, 30, has converted 78.4 percent of his field goals in his eight-year career, including 92 percent of his field goal attempts last season.
