Dispelling any rumors that Yankee captain and shortstop Derek Jeter might be dissatisfied with the New York Yankee's offer, Jeter spoke to reporters Tuesday saying he's never wanted to play anywhere else.

The New York Yankees formally announced a 3-year, $51 million contract at the press conference Tuesday afternoon.

"This is the only organization that I've ever wanted to play for, this is the only organization that I want to play for and this is where I want to finish my career. I've been vocal about that since day one," Jeter said.

Jeter also expressed anger over the way he's been portrayed in the media, saying he's neither ego driven nor greedy.

His previous 10-year, $189 million contract ends this year.
