Pies optimistic that forward jet won't go despite Brisbane tour (Callum Twomey, AFL.com.au, 07/10)
COLLINGWOOD is growing more confident free agent Jamie Elliott will re-sign with the club as Brisbane and Melbourne circle.
Elliott toured the Lions' facility over the weekend as he weighs up his options and Collingwood's contract offer.
List manager Ned Guy said on Monday at the opening of the Telstra AFL Trade Period that the Pies were getting more optimistic that the goalkicker will remain with the club.
"We're waiting. We're very hopeful and growing a little bit more confident, but until we get the green light we have to wait and see," he said.
