These are some serious dollars.
Dustin Martin has turned down the lure of a move to North Melbourne, signing a seven-year deal to remain with Richmond.
All reports suggest it was one hell of a lure.
Martin reportedly re-signed with Richmond until the end of 2024 for around $1.2m to $1.3m a season, which would put his total contract at about $9m.
It's the biggest contract in Richmond history.
Multiple sources have reported the size of North Melbourne’s offer to be even larger, at around the $1.5 million a season mark over the same duration of time.
It would have all added up to a contract worth about $10.5m over its entirety.
That would have meant Martin would have had the largest playing contract in history.
The North Melbourne offer would have eclipsed the mega-deal Lance Franklin accepted to move from Hawthorn to Sydney, which was $10m across nine seasons.
Gary Ablett also accepted big bucks to move to Gold Coast - at the time reported to be around $9m across five years - which was more money per year, but over a shorter term.
It beats Tom Boyd, too: he was recruited by the Dogs on a seven-year, $7m deal.
Decent pay day either way.
