Player Bio

A revered leader at the Tigers, Maric struggled in 2016 and played just three senior games, handing over the No. 1 ruck role to Shaun Hampson.

After considering his options, Maric signed on for a 13th AFL season believing he still has top-level football in him.

A valued mentor at the club, it is likely he will start the transition into coaching.

Player honours: 3rd best and fairest 2012; All-Australian nominee 2012.
Brownlow Medal: career votes 6.
Previous AFL club: Adelaide (2006-11: 77 games, 28 goals).
Draft history: 2004 NAB AFL Draft 3rd round selection (Adelaide) No. 40 overall; 2011 NAB AFL Draft traded by Adelaide for No. 37 (Jack Newnes).
