Shaun Grigg has said he would "love to see" Dustin Martin stay at the Tigers beyond this season.
Martin has been in career-best form, racking up 40 disposals and 15 clearances on Saturday against West Coast as Richmond surged to a 3-0 start.
The Sunday Rub team grilled Grigg on whether his mate would stay at Richmond.
"I'd love to see him stay," he said on Triple M.
"But obviously I'm not privy to contracts and those decisions."
Grigg suggested the talk around Martin's contract had seeped into the club...but it wasn't all bad.
"I like to get into him a little bit and have a bit of a joke," he laughed.
"I sort of get into him and say 'hurry up and get it done', because a few of us are out of contract and we've got a family to feed.
"We just try and make a few jokes of it and hopefully they can get it done."
