Axed Giant Sam Reid has confirmed discussions to land an AFL lifeline have begun, however the veteran remains grounded in his search to join a third club.
Reid was among four Greater Western Sydney players not to be offered a new deal for the 2022 season last week, ending a remarkable stint with the club.
The 31-year-old revealed last week he hopes to keep his 108-game career alive, having plenty left to offer at AFL level.
The Bundaberg product has quickly looked to assess his options for the future, telling RSN's Breakfast Club on Monday that he and his management have gotten discussions underway.
"I've had a couple of chats," Reid said.
"But as I know more than anyone until you sign on the dotted line or something's in writing, there's nothing over the line yet.
"I don't want to get my hopes up, but we're having a couple of chats and we'll see where they go."
Reid played 98 games for the Giants between 2012 and 2021, including an appearance in the 2019 Grand Final loss to Richmond.
The hard-nosed Giant played 15 games for the club this season, moving across the defence, midfield and the forward-line throughout his campaign.
