Delisted Collingwood midfielder Tyler Brown is reportedly a chance to fill the list vacancy at Adelaide that has been opened after Fischer McAsey's departure from West Lakes.
On Monday the Crows confirmed McAsey had decided to leave the club after losing the drive to play AFL football, with the young defender ending his spell with the Crows after three years and 10 games.
His departure has given the Crows some flexibility with their list with just over a month until the Supplemental Selection Period expires.
According to AFL.com.au's Josh Gabelich, Brown has been invited to train with the Crows across the coming weeks to potentially earn a recall into the AFL.
Brown was cut by Collingwood at the end of last season along with his older brother Callum, with the father-son pair both departing the club after a combined 97 games in the black and white.

Tyler managed 27 games in five seasons with Collingwood after joining the club as a father-son selection with Pick 50 in the 2017 National Draft.
Brown played 11 games for the Magpies in 2022, his last coming in Round 17 against North Melbourne as an unused medical sub.
Reports from The Age in recent weeks have suggested that Brown and former teammate Caleb Poulter have joined the Western Bulldogs' reserves, Footscray, for the 2023 season.
A move to Adelaide would see Brown link up with another recently departed Magpie in Jack Madgen, who has joined the Crows' SANFL program and is set to help mentor the club's emerging defenders at senior level.

The Crows will have until February 15 to make a call on signing Brown as an SSP recruit, with the 23-year-old set to join Adelaide training next Monday when they start their second week of training in 2023.
