The Jaguars agreed to terms with free agent wide receiver Mohamed Massaquoi on Friday afternoon, according to a report from Ryan O'Halloran of the Florida Times-Union.

Massaquoi, 26, was a second-round selection of the Cleveland Browns in the 2009 NFL Draft and made an instant impact as a rookie, finishing his first season with 11 starts and 624 yards receiving. However, his production gradually dropped off in each of the next three seasons and he finished the 2012 season on injured reserve after accumulating only 17 receptions for 254 yards in nine games.

With the emergence of young receivers Josh Gordon and Greg Little in Cleveland, Massaquoi became an expendable piece for the Browns who allowed him to walk in free agency.

In Jacksonville, Massaquoi joins a receiving corps that already looks as though it has its starters in place with Justin Blackmon and Cecil Shorts III. He'll fit in with Jordan Shipley and a few other young receivers in a battle for the top spot on the depth chart behind the starters.

Details of Massaquoi's contract have not yet been revealed.
