Former No. 5 draft pick Jarrad Grant has joined the Gold Coast Suns as a delisted free agent.

The Western Bulldogs delisted Grant at the end of last month’s trade period after 81 games in eight seasons, including 19 games in 2015.

“I couldn’t think of a more exciting club to join. I know a lot of people at the Suns and I take great confidence that they have faith in me to play the role they’re after,” Grant told the Suns’ website.

“Having played under ‘Rocket’ before, I know what he is after, know what he expects and I just can’t wait to get up there and start.”
