Tigers veteran Jack Riewoldt has hinted at what his future may look like next year.

The triple premiership forward is out of contract at the end of this season, which will cap off his 16th season in yellow and black.

Speaking with Fox Footy on program AFL 360, the three-time All-Australian said he is taking it one game at a time.

"A lot of people have asked me when I’m re-signing over the last two weeks just because I’ve probably run into a little bit of form," Riewoldt joked.

"I sort of don’t think too far past every week and whether or not I’ll play on next year or what it looks like."

Riewoldt has enjoyed a stellar month of football, having kicked 13 goals in his last four games, including two bags of four.

The 300 plus gamer revealed he has discussed the matter with his cousin, St Kilda great Nick Riewoldt.

"Chatting to Nick a little bit at the start of this year that if this is my last year, then these will be the last opportunities I get to play at the SCG, possibly the last Indigenous round last week and all of those things," he said.

"It’s good to enjoy them for what it is.

"It’s been great, I’ve really enjoyed training and everything that comes with it. So we’ll wait and see."

However, the veteran understands that things can change very quickly in football.

"I’m a realist as well – at 33, I’ll be 34 at the end of this year, it only takes a poorer month of football to maybe lose a bit of love or maybe the club loses a bit of love in me and my direction changes," he said.

"I’ve got other things in my life that I want to do as well.

"Why not think of it as your last opportunity to do these sort of things?"

The Tasmanian native praised Richmond and the time he has spent there, a time that has seen him lead the goalkicking at the club 11 times for 735 goals.

"It’s such a great journey and a great environment to work in … It makes me appreciate just how lucky I am to have been involved in a great football club and have a job like an AFL footballer," he said.

Riewoldt will line up for game 314 on Friday when the Swans host the Tigers at the SCG 7.50pm aest.
