Collingwood’s Brown brothers “in a bit of limbo”


Collingwood pair Callum and Tyler Brown remain without new contracts and in limbo, reports AFL Media’s Cal Twomey.

The father-son siblings, whose dad Gavin is a club legend, both come out of contract this year but new deals have not been forthcoming from the Magpies.

Callum, 24, has played six games in season 2022 while his 22-year-old brother Tyler has appeared 11 times in black and white at senior level.

With plenty of player movement at the AIA Centre expected this trade period, it is an uncertain time for the duo.

“They’re in a bit of limbo at the moment,” Twomey said on SEN Breakfast.

“They’re yet to receive contact offers for next year. Clubs are taking a bit of a look at them at this point.

“Collingwood has had a great season, they’ve been going so well, and their (the Brown brothers) respective appearances have been limited at senior level.

“Cal has played six times, Tyler’s played 11. Cal’s moved back recently to a more defensive role.

“A lot happening with the Pies this off-season, we know that. Dan McStay and Bobby Hill are likely to come, Jordan De Goey needs to make a call on what he does, Brodie Grundy is likely to be up for trade, and Ollie Henry still hasn’t been given a deal.

“The Brown brothers are yet to receive offers. The family history is strong but they’re out of contract and the season is winding up pretty soon.”

The older Brown picked up 36 disposals in the VFL against Carlton last week and will play in this Sunday’s Elimination Final against the Blues at Victoria Park. The younger sibling is currently unavailable due to a “fatigue related illness”.

Callum was drafted in 2016 and has played 70 senior games for the Pies while 2017 draftee Tyler has played 27 times at AFL level.
