The 300-game captain will play on in 2015.
Fremantle Dockers captain Matthew Pavlich will play on into a 16th AFL season after signing a one-year contract extension.
The 32-year-old this year became the first player of any Western Australian AFL club to play 300 games.
Pavlich’s decision comes off the back of recent Dockers re-signings, including the key duo of Nat Fyfe and David Mundy.
It is understood Pavlich will retain his role as captain, a post of which he has held since 2004.
He said his body was still up to the rigours of AFL football.
Clearly, when you get to this age, it’s a mind and body decision,” he told the club’s website.
“We sat down and had a bit of a chat about where I was at.
“I spoke to Ross (Lyon) and our medicos, and then I had a good chat with (wife) Lauren.
“It was more about whether or not I could keep playing my role for the team and keep playing at a reasonably high standard. That was important in the decision making process.”
Pavlich added he wasn’t looking beyond 2015 as of yet.
“Of course, there comes a point where the law of diminishing returns,” he said.
“Certainly, I think I entered this season with the view that it could well be my last. It’s something that we’ll keep monitoring as we go.”
