Dockers General Manager of Football Peter Bell spoke about Hill’s decision on the club’s website on Wednesday.
“During the latter part of the season Bradley advised the club of his intentions,” Bell said.
“Bradley is a previous Doig Medal winner in 2017 and, at 26 years of age, completed a career best season in 2019, establishing himself as one of the elite wingmen in the competition.
“We have an understanding that Bradley wants to return to Victoria for family reasons. However, as club when we consider the matter we will act in the best interests of our stakeholders.”
