Goddard told he won’t be offered contract at Essendon in 2019
Brendon Goddard is weighing up his AFL future after being told he will not be offered a contract at Essendon in 2019.
The club announced this morning that the round 23 match against Port Adelaide will be Goddard’s last in the red and black.
He has not announced his formal retirement and is considering his options elsewhere next season.
The club only informed Goddard yesterday that he would not be offered a contract in 2019.
The veteran began his career at St Kilda where he played 205 games before signing with Essendon ahead of the 2013 season. Goddard played 128 games in the red and black.
Goddard said he “fully respected the club’s decision”.
“I am at peace with the decision but still weighing up my options, given it is still very raw, I am taking some time to think about the future,” he said.
