The Orioles are nearing a contract extension with Adam Jones that would be the richest in franchise history. The deal is expected to be for six years and worth roughly $85 million, according to a source. Miguel Tejada (six-year, $72 million) and Nick Markakis (six-year, $66.1 million) previously received the largest contracts in Baltimore history. A source confirmed that Jones underwent a physical during the team's off-day Thursday, which is another sign that the extension talks are both serious and close. Jones, 26, can be eligible for free agency after next season.
