Reports: Posey signs historic contract with Giants

Posted: Updated:
San Francisco, CA (WALB) -

Former Lee County Trojan Buster Posey has signed a historic contract with the San Francisco Giants.

According to multiple reports, Posey and the Giants agreed to a 9 year, $167 million deal.

It's the longest ever contract signed by a catcher, and the second most expensive, behind Joe Mauer's $184 million.

Posey has had an incredible start to his career with San Francisco.

He's coming off an National League MVP season in 2012 when he led the Giants to a second World Series title.

He won the NL Rookie of the Year in 2010.

Reports say the contract comes with a $7 million signing bonus, and a full no-trade clause.
