Free-agent first baseman Freddie Freeman wants a six-year contract worth around $180 million, according to Jon Heyman of MLB Network.

Freeman, who's spent his entire 12-year career with the Atlanta Braves, has hit 271 homers with 941 RBIs and a .893 OPS in 1,565 games. He's a five-time All-Star who owns multiple Silver Sluggers and a Gold Glove to go along with a World Series title.

The 32-year-old and Atlanta's front office have expressed a mutual desire to get a deal done. However, it's unclear where negotiations stand.

The New York Yankees reportedly met with Freeman's representatives during the offseason. Other clubs could be pursuing the slugger too:
