One of the better free agents available, Arguably the best rebounding hbf Atm

I would expect when he signed a few years ago it was for not much and he’d be in line for a fair pay upgrade

25 years old, nice long kick and takes the game on. A lot to like, will have his suitors. I hope NM is one of them.

Will be re-signed on a much better contract with tigers. Apparently already in talks.

100% throw the cheque book at him and even if he stays like a dusty at least we up the tigers offer and a CCJ leaves instead

time to compensate him for being on likely unders the last few years

Yeah I can see a club like north coming at him hard. They have cash to burn and that reliable disposal running half back role has been vacant for some time.
Exactly the sort of role player they could entice with an overs contract. This is right in their wheelhouse.

Wouldn’t be surprised to see him assume a leadership role this year at the Tigers as they try to appease him for the difference in cash he will be offered by us vs others at the end of the year.

Especially with Maynard signing, think Short would be perfect for us the only other half back flank free agents would be bailey dale or Caleb Daniel

Considering he a restricted FA I wouldn’t assume he is on that big of unders. Another $100k max is all Richmond would probably need.
I can’t see any club offering him real big money simply because he doesn’t win his own ball, nothing of note defensively or not really an interception player. A great player but not the type you are breaking the bank for imo.

he's a back flanker so Carlton would probably offer $800k a year for five years.

Aren’t all players that reach free agency for the first time at year 8 of their career automatically restricted?

After that year it depends on salary

Short breaks the lines and at his best is one of those 70m players that really sets us up from the back half. I agree that he's probably not the sort of player that clubs will throw big money at and he's owed an increase in his current earnings from Richmond given his output over the period from 18 onwards. I don't think it'll be an issue, either for Jayden or Richmond and reckon this will be sorted pretty early on in the picture.

Very handy player, but rebounding HBFs are not necessarily the type smart clubs over pay.

Think he's earnt a pay rise with us but we won't offer anything silly, so if another club does then good luck to him.

After 8 seasons they have to be in the top 25% of paid players to be restricted, after 10 years it doesn’t matter they are all un-restricted

Correct, it's if the player is in the top 25% in that year and first time qualifying, restricted.

He could have been paid most of his last contract value in this last year to ensure he is restricted too.
