Delisted Essendon tall forward Patrick Voss is reportedly a chance to earn an AFL lifeline through Fremantle, with the Dockers in line to hand the emerging attacker a train and trial spot ahead for the Supplemental Selection Period.
Growing reports have already suggested former Gold Coast flanker Jeremy Sharp is poised to commence life as a Docker as early as Monday, with the 22-year-old set to land on Fremantle's list as their first of potentially multiple SSP signings.
The Dockers added four new faces via the National Draft on Tuesday night before selecting local talent Odin Jones at the Rookie Draft on Wednesday afternoon, with their recruitment run potentially not stopping at Sharp's impending acquisition either.
News Corp are reporting that Fremantle have emerged as a potential landing spot for Voss, who went unutilised at AFL level across two years with the Bombers.
Voss claimed Essendon VFL's best and fairest award this year after a promising campaign at the lower level, where he booted 30.26 from 17 matches as the spearhead in Leigh Tudor's side.
The Bombers called for patience on Voss' development in the opening half of the season as the club weighed up handing the former GWS Academy member a debut, however opted for other options to allow the 20-year-old to continue to hone his craft in the VFL.
The 194cm forward was eventually delisted by Essendon at the cessation of 2023 without a game to his name, with Will Snelling, Anthony Munkara, Alastair Lord, James Stewart, Rhett Montgomerie and Cian McBride also culled in what was a busy off-season for the Tullamarine club.
Voss could secure a second chance in the AFL if successful in his training stint with Fremantle, who noted a need for more attacking options ahead of the draft.
Woodville-West Torrens teenager Max Beattie is also set to train with the Dockers for an SSP spot following a promising year with the Eagles.
The 173cm midfield-forward played 18 matches at the senior SANFL level this year, booting 19 goals and averaging 14.3 disposals, 3.7 marks and 3.3 tackles per game.
The Dockers were able to add some height with the addition of the aforementioned Jones, while South Australian Jack Delean will look to fill a void left by small forwards Liam Henry and Lachie Schultz.
The SSP period is set to commence on November 27. Fremantle are yet to confirm the addition of Sharp or either Voss and Beattie to their program.
The Dockers trialled Liam Serong and Sam Stubbs last pre-season but decided to hold their list vacancy for the Mid-Season Draft where they recruited Box Hill product Ethan Stanley.
