Crows line up Richmond free agent Vickery

Richmond forward and restricted free agent Tyrone Vickery is reportedly being lined up by the Crows as a possible replacement for key forward Josh Jenkins.

The Age has reported that should Jenkins leave Adelaide, Vickery is earmarked as a like-for-like replacement, and the Crows have already made enquiries about the 200cm tall.

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.
