Brander's move to the Harbour City will see the Giants add versatility and height to their squad for next year, with the 22-year-old able to play key positions and through the midfield.
Brander played 22 games for the Eagles across four seasons with the club, featuring in the blue and gold on 11 occasions in 2021.
“We obviously had a strong connection with him up until his draft year and have tracked his career closely.
“We identified a need to bring in another tall option and given we’ve lost some experience through retirements and delistings, it’s great to add a player who has already been in the system for a few years.”
As of Wednesday clubs will be able to recruit delisted free agents for one week before a first list lodgement on November 10. Clubs will then have until November 15 to recruit any further players via the delisted free agency.
