THE SMOKY OF THIS YEAR’S FREE AGENT LIST

GWS Giants defender Aiden Corr is the smoky of this year’s free agent list as he waits for a long-term contract extension.

The Giants defender is seen as a long-term pillar of the back line alongside Sam Taylor as Phil Davis nears the end of an excellent career.

But Corr could be made to wait for clarity on Jeremy Cameron’s contract extension before terms are finalised up north.

Cameron is in no rush to recommit to GWS as all clubs wrestle with an expected reduction in the salary cap for next year.

GWS has done a brilliant job of keeping its top shelf stars such as Josh Kelly, Stephen Coniglio and Lachie Whitfield while maximising trade returns on departed ballwinners such as Adam Treloar and Dylan Shiel.

Zac Williams is also out of contract and going to loom large for clubs on the hunt for some electric run and star power such as North Melbourne.

Williams, who starred in a midfield role in the preliminary final win over Collingwood, has been shuffled back into defence in 2020.

Williams’ manager told the Herald Sun last week his client was likely to let his contract drift until the post-season as rivals wonder if he already has a club of choice.

“Zac is pretty much keen to let his footy do the talking for most of the year before we know where things are heading.

“Zac is happy at the Giants and as to what all contracts will look like down the track, we just don’t know where the goalposts are.”

He’s one of the best rebounding defenders in the game. But just how much is Adam Saad worth? There is work to be done between himself and the Dons.

Adam Saad and Essendon are still a long way apart on terms as he continues his blistering form for the Bombers.

It begs the question of how much clubs are willing to pay for back pockets, even one considered arguably the finest in the game.


After two excellent seasons finishing third and fourth in the best-and-fairest Saad comes out of contract this year, having just escaped quarantine despite a scare.

His three-year deal handed him around $410,000 a season but in ordinary circumstances he would be worth more than that for this upcoming contract given he is such a dual threat as a player.

He will surely stay but it remains to be seen how much he will secure given his all-round abilities.

Champion Data currently rates him as an elite defender, which includes elite disposals, elite intercepts and elite metres gained.

No deals are possible during the lock-down with some haggling left before every party is happy, so he will be desperate to make every post a winner as a 25-year-old coming into his prime.

Zac w, saad are nice pick up if available, don’t Essendon will let him go, they will ask for 2 first rounders. Matt crouch might be okay if we can get him cheap.

He’s not moving. He’s settled, recently married and comfortable at *
Carlton the only other real option, like last time but he’ll sign on with the scum

Being reported in Sydney this morning in the real estate pages that Josh Kelly has put the home he purchased in Coogee only a few months ago on the market due to a ‘change in circumstances’ whatever that means...
Well I hope it doesn't mean we'd trading for him when he's a RFA in 12 months.

When you see what Rowell and then last night Green can do it just shows how important those top end picks are - you should never trade them away unless its on a absolute certainty and need.

If we end up with a top 6 pick we must use it in the draft.

That said Darcy Moore does fit a need for us big time so using the other first on him is an option.
