After weighing interest
from Carlton, Essendon and Adelaide, Jack Graham will be a Richmond player until the end of 2023 after signing a new three-year deal with the Tigers.
"Since coming in in 2017 - it was a pretty good year to come in - obviously we won the flag and I was lucky enough to be a part of that. Then I've had some ups and downs, a couple of shoulder injuries, which didn't help, but here I am now ready to go again leading into finals," he said.
"It's just going to be an exciting time, I'm really looking forward to it, along with the next three years of my future at Richmond."

Jack Graham speaks of his disappointment
in missing out on selection to Richmond's 2019 premiership-winning side due to a dislocated shoulder.
Graham said he knew his fate once he spoke to Tigers coach Damien Hardwick before the team's main training session in the lead-up to the match.
"I knew once he grabbed me. I thought, 'this can't be good'. We hadn't even had the main session yet. "It was hard to swallow," Graham said.
"But, at the same time, if there's a bloke who is 100 percent fit and I'm going to be 90 percent fit … I'd have still given everything I could have with that 90 percent, but it would have been silly to pick me and not the fit person."

Marlion Pickett will make history this week when he becomes the first player in 67 years to earn his AFL debut in a Grand Final.
Richmond informed Pickett on Thursday that he would be part of its team for the premiership decider, just four months after he was recruited to the club in the NAB AFL Mid-Season Rookie Draft.
He will replace Jack Graham in Richmond's team, with the midfielder ruled out earlier in the week after suffering a dislocated shoulder in Friday night's preliminary final win over Geelong.
Pickett, 27, won the Norm Goss Medal for the best player in last week's VFL Grand Final, enhancing his hopes of making a remarkable senior debut on Saturday's big stage against Greater Western Sydney.

"I backed them in and strengthened it up so it's good. I've never done a shoulder before and I was a little bit shocked at the time."

Jack Graham grew up supporting Adelaide and idolising star Crows midfielder Rory Sloane.
On Saturday, the teenager shut down Sloane in a Grand Final and was a key player in Richmond's breakthrough premiership.
"You don't want to be a prick of a thing, but I needed to do my role for the team and shut him down. I respect him so much as a player," Graham said.
"I was mainly pushing him under [the ball]. I'm not a really physical guy, I didn't want to bash him because I respect him so much so I just wanted to annoy him a little bit.
"Maybe I did [get under his skin] a bit but he's a great athlete and an amazing player who I've modelled my game off for the last three or four years. To be next to him was amazing."
