This is another boost to the rebuilding club in what is shaping as a good summer after things didn't appear to be going that way at the end of season 2021.
However, the acquisition of Melbourne high-performance guru Darren Burgess, as well as Sydney star Jordan Dawson, has seen things take a positive turn. The thought of combining Dawson and Seedsman for the coming years should excite Crows fans.
This season saw Seedsman take his game to a new level. He made the 40-man All Australian squad and was arguably stiff not to make the final cut.
His re-signing is another tick for the Crows, who are desperate to get back to playing finals after a horror couple of seasons. Locking Seedsman in is a good piece of that puzzle.
In season 2021, the 29-year-old averaged 26 disposals, 5.4 marks, 2 clearances and 5.7 inside 50's per game. Those are extremely handy stats for a club rebuilding their midfield.

Effusive in his praise of the hard-running midfielder, Reid praised Seedsman for being "a very good player for us since he joined the Club in 2016...
“Off the field he has also impressed with his leadership at training and in meetings and set an example for some of our younger players to follow.
“For Paul to recommit to the Club until the end of 2023 is a big boost for us as we look to take momentum into pre-season training and next year.”

For his part, Seedsman appeared extremely pleased to have extended his contract, saying “I’ve been really encouraged by the progress our group has made over the past two years and I’m rapt to still be a part of it for the next couple of years,”
“We still have a lot of work to do and the challenge is ahead of us but we have a lot of talent on our list and there is a real hunger to continue to improve.”
