Richmond are set to recruit Maverick Weller as part of the AFL’s Pre-Season Supplemental Selection Period (SSP).
The former Saint can be signed by the Tigers on December 1 and can not train with the club until then.
Weller played 121 games for St Kilda before being delisted at the end of the 2018 season.
He was set to be in the National Draft but withdrew to allow Richmond to pick him up.
Richmond General Manager Neil Balme was pleased to announce the club’s intentions.
“We think Mav will fit into our team and our football program really well,” Balme told the club’s website.
“We’ve been really impressed by him, and at only 26 years of age, he has plenty of football ahead of him.”
