AFL releases full list of 119 free agents for 2021


The AFL has released a list of 119 current free agents ahead of the upcoming off-season.

That number was reduced by one this week, with Richmond veteran Jack Riewoldt quietly re-signing for a further year.

The list of restricted players is headlined by Carlton co-captain Patrick Cripps and Essendon star midfielder Zach Merrett.

These players can nominate to join a team of their choosing, though their existing side has the opportunity to match it. As we saw with Jeremy Cameron last year.

Unrestricted free agents however can walk wherever they like. For example, Zac Williams last year.

See the full list below:


Matt Crouch (Adelaide Crows)
Patrick Cripps (Carlton)
Zach Merrett (Essendon)
Jake Kolodjashnij (Geelong Cats)
Josh Kelly (GWS GIANTS)
Jack Billings (St Kilda)
George Hewett (Sydney Swans)
