But a six- or seven-year deal worth between $150 million and $200 million is more likely. The largest contract in Orioles history is Adam Jones' six-year, $85.5 million contract, which he signed in 2012. Agent Scott Boras always seems to find one team willing to make a major investment in his elite clients. An interesting comparison is Mark Teixeira (Mount Saint Joseph), a former client of Boras' who landed an eight-year, $180 million deal with the New York Yankees in 2009, months before his 29th birthday. As soon as the last out of World Series is made, six Orioles become free agents. The club then has five days to work out contract extensions before players can begin negotiating with other teams.Rarely do players sign during that exclusive period, and Orioles executive vice president Dan Duquette said recently that he expected all six to test the market.
