Alex Rodriguez and the New York Yankees have agreed to the outline of a $275 million, 10-year contract, a deal that potentially would allow him to earn millions more if he sets the career home-run record accoriding to the Associated Press.

The amount of the guaranteed money was revealed by a person familiar with the negotiations who spoke today on condition of anonymity because the deal hasn't been finalized. A-Rod met Wednesday in Tampa, Fla., with the Steinbrenner brothers but the parameters of the deal were set in place last weekend.

''Yeah, I could say that,'' Yankees senior vice president Hank Steinbrenner said. ''The meeting was a final get-together. He wanted to make sure myself and my brother knew that he was sincere and serious.''

The Yankees still must draft the agreement with Rodriguez's agent, Scott Boras.
