The New York Mets' initial contract offer to third baseman David Wright is expected to be near $100 million, according to people familiar with the team's thinking in a report from Jon Heyman of CBSSports.com

The Mets are believed to have some flexibility as they intend to try hard to keep their biggest star. They are expected to give negotiations at least most of October before even considering a trade for Wright.

The Mets have reached out to Wright and star pitcher R.A. Dickey in recent days, and the club is focused for now on trying to sign both players to extensions.

Wright, a homegrown nine-year Mets veteran who hit .306 with 21 home runs and 93 RBIs in 2012, recently said he was extremely optimistic that he'd remain a Met.
