Dan Connolly from the Baltimore Sun is reporting that the Baltimore Orioles have discussed a contract extension with center fielder Adam Jones. New general manager Dan Duquette has said that they have talked, but the goal right now is to iron out a deal for the 2012 season.

Jones has his arbitration hearing on Friday and seeks a deal just north of $7 million. The Orioles have in turn offered him $6 million. The 26 year old outfielder has been involved in some trade talks this off season, but it seems like the season will start with him on the Orioles roster.

Jones was acquired by the Baltimore Orioles in 2007 along with George Sherrill from the Seattle Mariners for Erik Bedard. Since then, he has been one of the most consistent pieces in the Orioles lineup. The extension talks are new, as Jones said himself a month ago that they were not talking.
