Richmond have delisted Steven Morris, Todd Elton and Taylor Hunt on Monday.

The trio join retirees Ivan Maric and Chris Yarran as 2017 departures from Punt Road Oval.

Morris will stick with Richmond’s VFL team in 2018.

“On behalf of everyone at Richmond, I would like to thank Todd and Taylor for their contribution to the Club,” Tigers football manager Dan Richardson said.

“We are delighted Steve will return for the VFL Tigers in 2018 and also thank him for his service as an AFL player.

“We wish them and their families all the very best for the future.”

Morris played 87 games for the Tigers after being traded to them in 2011 as a prelisted GWS player.

Hunt played 42 games for the Tigers after joining them as a delisted free agent at the end of 2014. He previously played 63 matches for Geelong for a career total of 105.

Elton only managed 10 games in six seasons with Richmond.
