The AFL free agency and trade period has come around once again, with more players expected to change clubs than ever before in the 2016 off-season.
On this page we’ll be keeping track of every player who has moved clubs in 2016, whether they did so via a trade or as a free agent.
We’ll also have all the details on any draft pick swaps that occur between clubs, and what compensation picks clubs receive for free agent departures.
