Brodie Smith will be a Crow until at least the end of 2021 after signing a three-year contract extension.

The dashing defender is on the road to recovery after rupturing his ACL in Adelaide’s Qualifying Final win over Greater Western Sydney.

An important member of the Club’s back six, Smith ranked No.1 at the Club for metres gained and second for effective kicks and rebound 50s in 2017.

The 2014 All Australian said he was happy to secure his future at West Lakes.

“It’s been a difficult offseason for me with the knee reconstruction, but to be able to agree to a new deal is both comforting and exciting,” Smith said.

“Adelaide is just a great Club to be a part of and I’ve formed some really close relationships with players, coaches and staff who are all trying to get the best out of each other.

“I couldn’t imagine playing football anywhere else and I will be doing everything I can to get back out on the park with my teammates as quickly as I can.”

Crows General Manager List Management and Strategy Justin Reid said Smith was an important senior member of the playing group.

“Brodie is one of the most damaging running defenders in the competition who has a unique ability to break the lines,” Reid said.

“Over the last few years, we’ve really seen him grow as both a player and a leader within the group.

“He’s approached his rehabilitation with a fantastic attitude and we look forward to him getting back to playing.”

Recruited with pick No.14 in the 2010 National Draft, Smith has played 143 AFL games since making his debut in Round One, 2011.
