The HUN going with “at least one interstate club has been raised as a genuine option but any deal would only involve a late pick”.

That narrows it down to 8 clubs then.

I soundly believe that he would be a great get for the Pies and I think Fly and Leppa would agree. They could easily re-arrange that forward line into a far more mobile unit. They clearly don't have 2 talls, so Cadds playing as a medium sized forward would work in their forward line, alongside Mihocek and with smalls such as Elliott and others around them. They may even play Mihocek as a mid sizer too, and use Will Kelly as the tall. Having him develop with Cadds and Mihocek blocking for him would be invaluable.

Whilst I understand their cap is tight, you'd think that adding a 2nd year with a trigger for a 3rd (no-one else will give him a 3 year trigger) they can then average his salary out across the full 3 years. He'd be the perfect person in their forward line to give them structure and both Leppa and Fly know what he can do in an undersized forward line.

Potentially trading 1 of our 2nds and Cadds to the Pies for their 2nd next year would work for both. It gives them the points they need for Daicos and also gives them Cadds who would be a good pickup. Essentially we aren't even really getting anything for him, just packaging up with a pick that may not even gain an upgrade (depending on how the pies go next year).

The Hawks might be the other one if they trade Gunston. Basically a cheap replacement for Gunston without having to pay anything for him. I guess the Kangas could potentially be interested in him as a forward also. Medium sized option to take a tall away from Larkey etc.
Collingwood a good fit. Top idea.
In terms of leadership, driving the club to success and on field spirit both Carlton and Gold Coast should look at him. They have talented players but not the dedication, so taking Cadds in Hodge/Birchall role would help the clubs.
North have Ziebell as that strong utility, played Z down back so I can't see them bringing in Caddy

He was racking up big numbers in the VFL this year. Played to his strengths. Why can't we facilitate that in the seniors? Or as a permanent forward option?

Either way, would rather keep him for another year rather than cash in for a rubbish pick. Unless we can use him to upgrade one of our first round picks.

Fly might be intrested in taking him across.

Where about was he playing in the VFL mate?

Id say you could rule out West Coast, Sydney, GWS, Brisbane and Port.

Would be Goldies or Frockers, most likely, although the Crows could do with another forward.

I'm happy for him to see his contract out at the RFC unless they see him moving him out for salary cap room to accommodate a key trade in or FA.

Still reckon he is better as a forward. Could be useful as a mobile leading forward but where would we fit him?

I will always have a great respect for CAD! one mistake, we didn't give Caddy a chance to play in the forward line this year. Now, it's at the cross roads, we can't afford to give another year if we have no intentions of playing him. He is a Richmond Man, he has given plenty for us. 2017 & 2018 were his better years, 2019 was very serviceable too. Should be given the opportunity on his terms to move.

With all due respect Josh for having been an important member of two premiershis, I'll be surprised if he's picked up at another club next season. For his & our salary cap's sake I hope he can
