Tim Watson doesn’t think Port Adelaide’s Chad Wingard is worth $1 million dollars a season, as speculation continues to linger around his future.
It has been reported Wingard’s management has put a $1 million dollar price tag on his head, something Watson doesn’t agree with.
“He would need to improve a lot and start producing a lot more than what he has in the last season,” Watson told SEN Breakfast, when asked if Wingard was deserving of $1 million dollars per year.
“I reckon his best season was either his first or his second year in AFL football.
“He hasn’t been able to produce the numbers that you would expect.
“I was thinking he would move into the midfield and he would actually be an elite star quality midfielder in the game but he hasn’t been able to do that. He hasn’t moved into that zone at all.
“Back in 2015 when he was playing his best football that he has produced to this point, his most consistent football, he was an elite talent in the competition.
“He was a match-winning type player but he hasn’t been able to reproduce that.
“The challenge for him is the consistency level. He hasn’t lived up to that hype (of 2015).”
Wingard kicked 22 goals in 21 games this year, while averaging 20.8 disposals.
