At the beginning of November, seven delisted players signed with new clubs as free agents. Each club notified the AFL of the signings.

Melbourne - Ben Newton
Newton, a midfielder, debuted for Port Adelaide in 2014 but played only four games in total.

Western Bulldogs - Joel Hamling
Drafted in 2011 by Geelong, the speedy midfielder/forward did not play any senior games for the Cats.

Carlton - Matthew Dick
The tall and versatile defender, who can push into the midfield, was drafted by Sydney in 2012 but could not break into the strong Swans side.

Richmond - Taylor Hunt
The versatile midfielder/tagger played 63 games with the Cats following his 2010 debut, but managed only four games in 2014.

Geelong - Sam Blease
Blease was drafted by Melbourne in 2008 and played 33 games with the Demons. An ankle injury restricted him to just ten games in 2013. He played only two games in 2014. Can play a number of positions including wing and forward.

St Kilda - Tim Membrey
Membrey requested a trade from Sydney for more playing opportunities. The medium-sized forward played only one game in his first year with the Swans.

Brisbane - Mitch Robinson
Robinson played 100 games for Carlton following his 2009 debut. Out of contract at the end of 2014, he was involved in several off-field incidents and the Blues decided to cut him loose.
