The Pittsburgh Steelers are officially on their fourth kicker since the preseason.
Boswell, who had a tryout, signed a two-year deal with the Steelers, a source told ESPN NFL Insider Adam Caplan. He was in Giants training camp this summer.
Since Shaun Suisham went down with a torn ACL in his left knee in the first preseason game, the team signed Garrett Hartley, who's now on injured reserve, and then traded a sixth-round pick to Jacksonville for the rights to Scobee, who carried a $2.5 million salary.
The Steelers likely walked away from Scobee without much financial burden because Jacksonville paid $925,000 via a signing bonus to facilitate the trade.
Scobee also missed two kicks in the season opener, marking 10 misfires since 2014, a league high.
Boswell, who played at Rice, participated in the 2014 Senior Bowl and was cut by the Texans later in the year.
