Jeter Wants a 4 to 5 Year Deal Worth $22-24M Per Year (Updated)

(UPDATE: Saturday @ 12:30 pm) According to a Daily News report this morning, Jeter's camp is asking for $22-24 million over four or five years, so just slightly different from the NY Times report from yesterday.

From Michael S. Schmidt:

Derek Jeter’s agent, Casey Close, is currently asking the Yankees to agree to a new contract of either four or five years at $23 to $24 million a year, according to a person in baseball who had been briefed on the matter.

The disclosure of what Close is seeking on behalf of Jeter, the 36-year-old Yankee captain and icon, comes just days after it was revealed that the Yankees are offering Jeter a three-year contract for $15 million a year.

OK, so it's not $25 million a year for six years, but it's still ridiculous.
