Collingwood has officially announced a bunch of re-signings, including out of contract defenders Tom Langdon and Darcy Moore.
Langdon and Moore, both of whom saw plenty of trade speculation over the past couple of months, have been re-signed on a three-year deal and a two-year deal respectively.
Josh Thomas has also signed for three years, while young defender Flynn Appleby has signed for two years.
Lynden Dunn, Tim Broomhead and Jamie Elliott have all put pen to paper on one-year extensions.
“This is a squad that is still discovering how good it can be, a squad that is still to ripen,” Collingwood list manager Ned Guy said.
“For a majority of the players on our list, the prime years of their careers are out there in front of them.
“A lot of work over a number of years went into piecing the squad together and if you combine the profile of the list, the improvement we witnessed this year and the improvement to come then keeping largely with what we have and adding to it through select trading and drafting is prudent.”
