    Early Trade Rumours for 2022

    * Essendon have reportedly launched an “ambitious” play for an out-of-contract St Kilda big man.

    According to 7NEWS, the cashed up Bombers are desperate to add another ruckman/key forward to help 23-year-old Sam Draper.


    And their sights are set on Saints ruckman Rowan Marshall.

    *
    Hawks looking at free agent Kyle Langford

    * Some Essendon players out of contract: Nik Cox, Matt Guelfi, Alec Waterman, Andrew Phillips, Anthony McDonald-Tipungwuti, Archie Perkins and Zach Reid.

    Any interest?

    Rowan Marshall would be a great target if English leaves - he'd also be an ideal pairing for English, but I don't think we could afford both.

    With Ryder on the way out I’d be absolutely shocked if Saints let Marshall go under any circumstances.
    I would love him at the dogs though.
    I will never see #16 the same!!

    Nik Cox. Apparently he's quite athletically gifted for a 200cm man.

    A club would need to offer 800K a year at least to get him out on the Saints. Can't see them letting him walk.

    Ha true. He can't offer much on the defensive side. Great kick as BAD says but you need more than one string to your bow surely.

    Saints have been linked to Lobb to replace Ryder and partner Marshall, no way would they let Marshall go.

    Kind of funny that Saints went hard at Sam Drapper a few years back to partner with Marshall.

    Now Essendon returning the favour.

    Is it all a signal about how aggressive Essendon are going to be in trying to improve?

    That's been their m.o. for a while.

    Remember the triple s'....?

    2017 Saad, Stringer, Smith.

    The following year Shiel which basically wiped their first pick for two seasons.

    They also extracted a top 10 pick from GWS in Caldwell.

    They have to go to the draft I think like they have been recently and suck it up as they tried the trade route and its set them back again.

    Shame.

    Edit : Caldwell went 11 not top 10.
