Source: Lions agree to terms with WR Jarett Dillard

The Lions worked out free agent wide receiver Jarett Dillard on Monday and agreed to terms on a one-year contract following that workout, according to league sources.

Dillard, a fifth-round pick of the Jaguars in 2009, played in 14 games (five starts)  for the Jaguars last year and caught 29 passes for 292 yards and a touchdown. The Jaguars released him in May. Dillard (5-10, 187) missed all of the 2010 season with a foot injury.

The Lions will have to make room on the 90-man roster for Dillard, but have yet to announce that transaction.

Dillard holds the NCAA record for career touchdown receptions with 60 while at Rice.

The team signed veteran receiver Maurice Stovall last week.
