Mason Cox's future remains up in the air with the American keen to keep his AFL career alive.
Cox recently admitted if it was decided his time at Collingwood was done, that he would like to pursue opportunities at another AFL club.
With the Pies yet to appoint a new head coach for 2022 and beyond Cox is awaiting to find out whether he will be a part of the new coaches plans.
Gerard Healy believes that there is definitely a place for Cox on an AFL list given some of his natural physical attributes.
Healy said that while Cox could find a new home, he would have to do so at a far lesser pay rate than what he is earning at Collingwood.
“I think Mason (Cox) will land up somewhere else,” he said on AFL Nation.
“I think he needs to get used to the idea that he’s not going to be on $500,000 or $600,000 (per son), it’s probably going to be more like $200,000 with incentives if he plays.
“But I still think as a second ruckman and a forward, I still think there’s a spot for him.”
Currently no clubs have registered any official interest in Cox but that could change was Collingwood make a decision on his future.
Collingwood have seen Chris Mayne retire already as the club embarks on a rebuild after finishing 17th this season.
They will welcome in Nick Daicos who could go as high as pick 1 in the National Draft and have been linked with
Darcy Cameron's future could play a role in Cox's decision. Cameron appears likely to be re-signed meaning he could play the 2nd ruck role and hold a spot down forward that Cox would otherwise occupy.
Josh Thomas is the most likely to leave out of the group named above with the small forward seemingly deemed surplus to requirements at the Holden Centre.
Brayden Sier is another who could attract significant interest from outside Collingwood with the big bodied midfielder yet to cement his place in the Collingwood team.
