Looking to retain their star third baseman for the long term, the New York Mets have offered David Wright a seven year contract, according to multiple reports.

The Mets picked up Wright's $16 million team option for the 2013 season last month, after he completed the final year of a five-year, $55 million contract. Now, it appears the team is attempting to make its all-time leader in hits, runs, walks and RBI a Met for life.

The 30-year-old batted .306 with 21 home runs and 93 RBI last season, earning his sixth All-Star Game selection and finishing fifth in the National League with an .883 OPS.
