Collingwood has secured a three-year contract extension for Jamie Elliott to essentially make him a Magpie for life.
The 29-year-old was due to come out of contract at the end of the season as a free agent but has recommitted to the club until the end of 2025.
He has played his 150th game in Friday night’s win over Melbourne and has kicked 21 goals in 14 games in 2022.
He’s on foot for life. @elliott_jw signs on 🖤

Collingwood head of footy Graham Wright said Elliott has become “invaluable” to the club.
“We’re pleased to extend Jamie for another three years, and to hopefully see him play out his career at the Club,” Wright said.
“Jamie is an instrumental figure in our program. Across 11 seasons he has a wealth of football smarts which is invaluable to the youth of our group.
“The likes of Ash Johnson, Jack Ginnivan, Beau McCreery and Ollie Henry are products of great improvement credit to Elliott’s influence in the forward line.
“In addition to this, Jamie is a player who stands up in the moments that matter, inspiring all members of our program.
“We respected the fact Jamie was a free agent at the end of this year, and we are glad to come to terms that see him at the Club until the end of 2025.”
Elliott kicked the game-winning goal in Round 19 against Essendon and has kicked 11 majors across his last five games.
