Braves & Chipper Jones Agree to Terms on Contract Extension | Official Info

The deal “virtually guarantees that the 36-year-old Jones will play his entire Major League career in a Braves uniform.” That’s a good thing, though sometimes it’s hard to get through some people’s heads. Apparently, there are about $40 million in guarantees over the three years; the question is how much of the money is deferred. Chipper would, of course, like to get paid, but he doesn’t want to cripple the team either.
