Andrew Embley's coveted number 32 will be up for grabs in 2018

Numbers available: 1, 10, 11, 12, 21, 22, 26, 32, 33

Some famous numbers are up for grabs at the Eagles this year, starting with the No.32 worn by Norm Smith medallist Andrew Embley in 250 games.

The jumper was vacated by delisted forward Simon Tunbridge and will be hot property. 

Sam Mitchell's No.1 worn for one season by the champion midfielder is also back on the market. It was most famously worn by Brett Heady for 136 games (he wore No.39 in his first season).

Delisted half-forward Tom Lamb has left No.10 free, given a new Eagle the opportunity to emulate the feats of premiership Eagles Michael Braun (228 games) and Don Pyke (132).

The only player to notch more than 100 games in No.21 is bullocking forward Quinten Lynch, and his number is on the market again after one season on the back of Drew PetrieJonathan Giles (No.22), Sam Butler, who played a record 166 games in No.26, and Josh Hill (No.33) have also vacated their numbers. 

Did you know? 
Every player to wear No.3 or No.17 for the Eagles (six in total) has played 100 games or more for the club. The same goes for No.50, with Ryan Turnbull the sole tenant, notching 129 games.
