The New Orleans Saints will sign kicker Connor Barth, reports Adam Schefter of ESPN.

The move comes after the Saints parted ways with veteran kicker Josh Scobee on Tuesday. The team also has Kai Forbath on its roster.

Barth, 30, was released by the Tampa Bay Buccaneers after the team drafted Florida State kicker Roberto Aguayo in the second round of the 2016 draft.

Over his eight-year career, Barth has made 84.8 percent of his 164 career kicks.

He missed five kicks over 40 yards last season, finishing the season 23-of-28 overall.
