The Philadelphia Eagles and rookie wide receiver Jeremy Maclin have reached agreement on a five-year contract, a source close to the negotiations has told the National Football Post.

Specifics of the deal were not immediately available.

Maclin, the 19th overall pick in April’s NFL Draft and two-time All-American at Missouri, caught 102 passes for 1,260 yards and 13 touchdowns last season for the Tigers.

He’s expected to be a contributor on special teams for the Eagles this season and should also see action at wide receiver as he gets more comfortable with the offense.

With this signing, Philadelphia now has all eight of its 2009 draft picks under contract.
