Scobee made the announcement on Facebook, and he signed a one-year deal, according to NFL Network's Ian Rapoport:
Nick Underhill of the Advocate reported Scobee took the one-year deal because he "wanted to make sure economics didn't play a role since [the] Saints will have competition there."
The former Louisiana Tech standout spent the first 12 years of his career with the Jags before signing with the Steelers last year as an injury replacement for Shaun Suisham.
Scobee made just six of his 10 field-goal attempts during his tenure in Pittsburgh, though, and he admitted that he was dealing with a strained quad and hip flexor when he missed a pair of key field goals in a 23-20 loss to the Baltimore Ravens in Week 4.
The Longview, Texas, native boasts a career field-goal percentage of 80.1 percent, which ranks him 40th on the all-time list.
He is an eight-time AFC Special Teams Player of the Week, and he ranks 11th among active players with 1,046 career points.

The Saints struggled mightily in the kicking game in 2015, as Kai Forbath and Zach Hocker combined to make just 18 of 26 attempts for a 69.2 percent success rate.
New Orleans would be hard-pressed to turn in a worse kicking performance in 2016, and based on Scobee's overall body of work, an improvement seems likely.
Scobee certainly has a lot to prove after such a poor season last year, but with a fairly high-powered offense led by quarterback Drew Brees moving the football, he should have plenty of chances at redemption.
