The out of contract Jenkins has reportedly been offered a $750,000 per season, five-year deal by the Brisbane Lions.

Adelaide’s offer is said to be around $550,000 per season over four years, which would fall around $1 million short of the Lions’ offer even if it stretched to five years.

Jenkins has enjoyed a career best season to date, booting 40 goals in 14 games.

  1. Ty Vickery is laughed at by his own fans. They are so eager to get rid of him that is isnt funny. And this is in a team with little or no height and cannot make the 8. He is not like for like at all, he is a step down. A huge step down.

  2. As a Tiger supporter I would be wrapped if that spud went to the crows. He only plays 2/3 half decent games a season the rest of the time he is giving away free kicks.

    • All reports are the Jenkins deal is done. We would just be doing due diligence. I would be surprised if we went for Vickery unless we got him cheap. No real upside.

      At 26 almost 27 and barely showing glimpses I think Harry Dear or Reilly Obrien in our 2s would be a more likely choice.

    • Exactly my thoughts! Nothing personal against the bloke,but we as a club want to be taken seriously and that certainly wouldn’t help the credentials imo….

    • Probably one of those things that someone has said “I’ve heard” …. and it has blown way way over the top. Than some reporter needs to hand a story in or something and taa dar…

    • I lose Durant from OKC yesterday. Now this!!! It’s all falling apart mate, hope we at least get market value for him, we need a new wheelie bin at the club

  3. Please oh please Jenkins decide to sign for Brisbane!
