Scout.com's Brian Walton is reporting that the Cardinals and Burnett have agreed to a five-year deal. If so, it'd probably be in the $50 million range, or less than he could have gotten from another team. The St. Louis Post-Dispatch is still reporting that the Cardinals won't guarantee a fifth year, which might mean there's a vesting option involved.
