David Wright Declines Mets $100MM Deal
Posted By Sports Talk Florida Rumors On November 27, 2012 @ 10:11 am In MLB,News and Rumors | 1 Comment
The Mets offered Wright a six-year, $100 million contract extension on Monday, according to major-league sources.
It is an offer that Wright is certain to refuse.
Wright, who is under contract for $16 million in 2013, prefers a deal of seven years or longer, sources say.
The Mets’ proposal offered Wright only a slight raise, and matched the terms of the Ryan Zimmerman and Evan Longoria extensions, the latter of which was announced on Monday.
Wright, who turns 30 on Dec. 20, is older than Zimmerman, 28, and Longoria, 27, but perhaps the safest long-term bet.
