The Los Angeles Rams agreed to terms with veteran wide receiver DeSean Jackson on a one-year deal, the team announced Sunday night.

The 34-year-old wideout has five 1,000-yard campaigns in 13 seasons in the NFL, most recently in 2016. Jackson started five games with the Philadelphia Eagles last season, catching 14 passes for 236 yards and one touchdown.

Rams coach Sean McVay reached out to Jackson to bring him to Los Angeles, NFL Network reported. Jackson, who will team up with new Rams quarterback Matthew Stafford, played under then-offensive coordinator McVay from 2014-16 with the Washington Football Team.
