Over 100 players are set to enter 2023 eligible for free agency, with several stars of the competition able to hit the market with some freedom next year.
Each club has at least three free agents next year, with at least one name sure to be atop their list of retention signings for the future.
Here we list each club's top re-signing priority heading into 2023.
The Lions' list of free agents is a peculiar one. Their best talent listed as FAs come in the form of veteran pair Dayne Zorko and Daniel Rich, who will be no threat of departing Brisbane at the end of next year unless it's through retirement.
Should new recruit Conor McKenna prove to be a fruitful acquisition for Chris Fagan, the Irishman could again be a top target for clubs like Geelong and Port Adelaide, who missed out on his services ahead of the 2023 season.
McKenna could have an immediate impact in his first year back in the AFL and may face another big call on his future should a contract remain unsigned come the season's end.
