David Wright contract rumors: Mets offer 7 years, $130-145 million, per report

The New York Mets have offered third baseman David Wright a seven-year deal worth between $135-140 million, CBS Sports' Jon Heyman is reporting. The news is an update on earlier reports that said Wright was going to receive a contract for seven years "worth well above $100 million."

Heyman reports that talks between the organization and their six-time All-Star are "back and forth." However, if the Mets did offer Wright a deal between $135-140 million, it clearly puts the ball in his court, as those are numbers the 29-year-old was looking for.

The re-signing of Wright is the franchise's biggest priority this offseason, and it would like to get it done before the MLB Winter Meetings begin on Monday.

Last year, Wright had one of his best seasons ever hitting .306 with 21 home runs, 93 RBI and 91 runs scored. It was a nice bounce-back season after he was limited to just 102 games in 2011. Wright has been with the Mets for all of his nine seasons in the majors.
