Adam Jones Signs Extension

Today, the Orioles and Adam Jones finalized a 6-year, 85 million contract extension that will keep Jones in Black and Orange through the 2018 season.  The contract includes a full no trade clause, no option years at the end of the deal and a portion of Jones' annual salary will go toward Orioles' charities.

It is really great to see that Jones will be an Oriole for a long time and that the team is serious about winning.  They have faltered over the last 5 games, but still remain atop the AL East, leading Tampa by one game.  If they take today's game against the Royals, they will still gain another series win.

This season is shaping up to be a special one for the O's and today's signing of Adam Jones is yet another highlight.

Good work by the O's for getting this done. $85 million is a bargain for a stud like Jones.
