Crameri, 29, was delisted by the Bulldogs at the end of this season after 70 goals in 42 matches with the club.
The Herald Sun reports the Cats could sign Crameri as a rookie selection on a minimum wage to help spearhead Tom Hawkins inside 50.
Crameri missed the entire 2016 season due to Essendon’s 2012 supplements program and managed just two games this season due to a hip injury.
He played 57 matches with the Dons from 2010 to 2013, before seeking a trade to the Dogs.
Despite missing the majority of the 2017 season, Crameri said last month his body is feeling full fit.
