Bryce Harper and his agent, Scott Boras, met with the Washington Nationals for five hours on the Saturday before Christmas, according to a report.

The meeting took place with Nationals owner Ted Lerner.

It was reported on Wednesday that Harper's free agency could linger into February.

Washington offered Harper a 10-year, $300 million deal during the final week of the regular season and it remains unclear if it's still on the table.
