Crows General Manager of List Management and Strategy Justin Reid provides an update on the opening day of the AFL Trade Period …

On Bryce Gibbs …

“Bryce is a contracted Carlton player. As we all know, we showed interest last year but have since moved on and it’s not a focus for us."

On Steven Motlop …

“That’s only new, so we’ll work through that in the coming days. I wouldn’t read into what’s being reported, put it that way. Reports suggesting we’ve offered Steven a contract are totally incorrect. However, we have some interest and will do our due diligence. Free Agency is open until next Sunday, so he’s got a bit of time.”

On Charlie Cameron …

“Charlie has a contract for Season 2018. He’s a talented player and required at our Club going forward.”

On Jake Lever …

“We’re not going to discuss the asking price and specifics publicly because it serves no purpose in the negotiations. As we’ve said previously, we’ll always act in the best interest of the Adelaide Football Club. We’ve had some good dialogue with Melbourne. We’ll see how we go in the next fortnight."

On Aaron Francis …

“I've heard that one, but the Club has not made any approach to Essendon in regards to Aaron Francis.”

On player movement at Adelaide ...

“I think you have to take each case individually.

“It’s more a focus on the players who are at the football club. There’s a lot of players who have bought into the team-first environment and there’s a lot of players who have come to the football club.

“We know we’re a good football club and we’ll stand by what we do, and do the best for the Adelaide Football Club.

“What we’ve been through at the football club in the past five years player welfare is of the highest order. From a player welfare point of view, we’ll continue to do that.”
