Here was a bit from the NY Post today:
While the Yankees met with Jeter, talks with Mariano Rivera and his agent Fernando Cuza were described yesterday by a Yankees source as “not active.”
Rivera is going to be 41 at the end of the month, but there is both interest on his part and on the part of the Yankees to bring him back. He’s on the back-burner because of the importance of signing Lee and the intricacies of signing Jeter.
He’s probably going ot earn close to what he has made over the past three years, $15 million. The only thing he and the Yankees probably have to worry about is whether it is a one or two year deal. He might be in line for a small raise, but nothing sigficant.
I would like to see the Yankees reaching out to him every now and then to remind him of his importance to the team so that way he doesn’t take this all as an insult though. I doubt he would anyway.
