According to Ken Rosenthal, the Blue Jays are "on the verge" of signing center fielder Vernon Wells to a seven-year, $126MM deal. It would include a full no-trade and an opt-out clause.
As we've seen with opt-out clauses lately, that might make this less than a seven-year contract in reality. The crazy part is that the $18MM annual salary is seen as a loyalty discount.
