The Jets agreed to terms with second-round draft pick Stephen Hill Thursday, his agents told Newsday.

The newest Jet receiver, who was taken with the 43rd overall pick in last week's draft, signed a four-year deal worth a little less than $5 million, according to Jared Fox and Alan Herman.

Sixty percent is guaranteed, they said.

Hill, a Georgia Tech product, is expected to land the No. 2 receiver spot opposite Santonio Holmes.
