What did it take for both sides to agree?
Rumored to be in the ballpark of about $19 million per season, over three years with an option for a fourth. The fourth season is TBD on Jeter’s performance, no specifics are known as to what these requirements entail.
This means Jeter keeps the same salary as his last contract, which was 10 years at $189 million bucks.
That is a fair price for an icon.
I am truly content to spread this news around, but will be elated when the hearsay turns into our reality.
