Wide receiver Sterling Shepard has agreed to terms on a one-year contract with the Tampa Bay Buccaneers, multiple media outlets reported Thursday.

Financial terms of the deal were not disclosed for Shepard, who will see a familiar face in quarterback Baker Mayfield. The two were teammates at Oklahoma, with Shepard reeling in 86 passes for 1,288 yards and 11 touchdowns in 2015.

Shepard, 31, had just 10 catches for 57 yards and one touchdown in 15 games last season with the New York Giants.

He has 372 receptions for 4,095 yards and 23 scores in 90 career games since being selected by the Giants in the second round of the 2016 NFL Draft.
