Three years, $51 million: Too much or about right?

One of the great signings of last season: Jack Curry to the YES Network. As always, Jack has been on top of this Jeter situation, and tonight he’s checked in with the contract details.

Essentially, the deal starts with a three-year contract worth $48 million. If Jeter doesn’t come back for a fourth year, there’s a $3 million buyout, bringing the minimum total to $51 million for three years.

If Jeter takes the fourth year, he’ll earn a base salary of $8 million, and the contract could add another $9 million in incentives. That means the most Jeter could make — if he goes all four years and hits every incentive — is $65 million.
