Maclin and Eagles agree on 5-year contract

PHILADELPHIA (AP) - Wide receiver Jeremy Maclin and the Philadelphia Eagles have agreed to terms on a 5-year contract, ending the first-round pick's holdout.

The deal was announced late Monday night. Financial terms weren't released.

The Eagles traded up two spots to select Maclin with the 19th pick in the NFL draft. Maclin caught 102 passes for 1,260 yards and 13 touchdowns as a sophomore at Missouri last season.

Maclin has been missing since the Eagles opened camp last Sunday. He joins a deep receiving corps that includes DeSean Jackson, Kevin Curtis, Jason Avant, Reggie Brown and Hank Baskett.
