The Jacksonville Jaguars signed free agent center Stefen Wisniewski on Saturday.

Terms of the contract were not disclosed, but the Florida Times-Union reported the deal is for one year and worth $2.5 million.

The 6-foot-3, 307-pound Wisniewski was a second-round selection by the Oakland Raiders in the 2011 NFL Draft out of Penn State. He started all four seasons with the Raiders, starting 16 games as a rookie and 16 games this past season. He started 15 games in 2012 and 14 in 2013.

“We had the opportunity to spend time with Stefen earlier this month and remained in contact with him with the hopes of getting a deal done,” Jaguars general manager David Caldwell said in a statement. “We are excited to get him on board before we officially start our offseason conditioning program next week. He gives us great position flexibility along our offensive line as he has started at both center and guard during his career. He has a familiarity with our offensive system and brings a lot of experience to our offensive line room. “
