Delisted free agency is set to commence next week, with AFL clubs weighing up offers to those that have been placed on the outer in 2022.
The upcoming recruitment window will not only see players gain another chance in the AFL, but could see clubs uncover the next Tyson Stengle, who joined Geelong last November before earning his maiden All-Australian blazer this year.
With over 70 players already delisted this year, we've looked toward 10 of the most prolific players that could re-enter the competition and have named a potential club that could thrown them a lifeline.
Delisted free agency will commence 9:00am Thursday, November 3, running until 5:00pm Wednesday, November 9 before re-opening on at 9:00am Friday, November 11, running until 5:00pm Tuesday, November 15.
2. Francis Evans
Evans just played seven games in the blue and white hoops in the last two seasons before seeing his chances in the top flight taken by the likes of senior trio Tyson Stengle, Bradley Close and Gryan Miers.
With retired club great Robbie Gray returning to Alberton, the likes of Evans, Rioli and Fantasia can learn from one of this century's best forward craftsmen.
