The Jacksonville Jaguars have a new No. 1 receiver.

They can only hope this one works out better than all the others since Jimmy Smith retired six years ago.

The Jaguars and Laurent Robinson agreed to a five-year, $32.5 million contract Wednesday evening, giving the team a much-needed splash in free agency. The deal includes $14 million guaranteed.

Robinson caught 54 passes for 858 yards and 11 touchdowns last season, a breakout year for a guy who was cut in training camp by San Diego and waived again after a week in Dallas. The Cowboys re-signed him a week later.

Robinson became in demand when several top free agent receivers were off the market, including Vincent Jackson, Marques Colston, Reggie Wayne and Pierre Garcon.
