Report: Mets Offer David Wright 7-Year Extension

Alex Trautwig/Getty Images(NEW YORK) -- The New York Mets have offered third baseman David Wright a contract extension that would keep him in Citi Field through at least 2020, according to a major league source, ESPNNewYork.com reports.

Wright batted .306 with 21 homers and 91 RBI's in 2012, and was also voted to his sixth All-Star game. Wright will also receive the $16 million he is owed in 2013.

"I'm hopeful that he'll end up a Met for life," Mets pitcher R.A. Dickey said Tuesday on ESPN Radio. "We live in a day and age that it's not always the case, you don't always have the happy endings."

Dickey is also seeking a new contract with one-year remaining on his current deal.  A source familiar with the talks did not believe that the deal would be finalized before next week's winter meetings.

The offer comes a day after the Rays extended their third baseman Evan Longoria to a six-year, $100 million deal.
