AFL 2013 Rd 10 - Melbourne v Hawthorn

Sam Grimley and Mark Jamar, seen here in 2013, may be Essendon teammates this season

ESSENDON is considering delisted former Hawk Sam Grimley as a potential top-up player, with the 25-year-old training with the Bombers.

Grimley, who played three games with Hawthorn over three seasons before being delisted at the end of last season, had signed a contract to play with Subiaco in the WAFL in 2016.

However he has made the trip east to train with the Bombers as they try to finalise their top-up players for 2016.

Subiaco has been told that the Bombers are likely to make a decision on whether to sign the big man by early next week, and will not have any objection to him joining Essendon if the chance arises.

Grimley has been joint winner of the VFL's Frosty Miller Medal as leading goalkicker over the past two seasons, kicking 46 goals in 2015 and 45 goals in 2014.

The Bombers have been struggling to find talls to lend support to Joe Daniher up forward. They recently signed former Melbourne ruckman Mark Jamar.

The club has already convinced Jamar, Ryan Crowley, James Kelly, Mathew Stokes, James Polkinghorne, Matt Dea and Jonathan Simpkin to play for the club in 2016.
