Leroy Jetta is set
to explore his options through free agency after parting ways with Essendon.
Jetta has played only 10 games in the past two years, including two in 2014, and was not contracted for 2015.
"It is a difficult decision to move on after eight years at Essendon but the time is right to look for new opportunities elsewhere," Jetta said on the Essendon website.
"I'vee been lucky enough to play under some terrific coaches, including James Hird and Mark Thompson, and I would like to thank everyone at the Essendon Football Club for the support they have shown me, especially my teammates."
