Yanks to offer Posada and Rivera deals

Tomorrow marks the end of the period of exclusivity - the period of time teams can negotiate with their own free agents alone.

That said, the Yankees are prepared to offer deals to Jorge Posada and Mariano Rivera before tomorrow's deadline.

From Mark Hale:

The players' current offers are comparable. Rivera will be offered a three-year pact for $39 million, while Posada's offer will be for approximately three years and $40 million. (New York Post)
Posada has stated that he wants a four-year deal and wants to field offers from other teams.

I can't see any other teams offering Rivera that kind of deal.
