Will Cam Sutcliffe be given a lifeline by the Swans?

SYDNEY has met with former Docker Cam Sutcliffe as it weighs up its options ahead of the Delisted Free Agency Period.

AFL.com.au understands Sutcliffe, and out-of-contract premiership Tiger Jacob Townsend, flew to Sydney last Friday to meet with the club and undergo medicals.

Coach John Longmire was also at the club to meet the pair, with the Swans holding an interest in adding some experience to their list.

They have also looked at delisted Geelong forward Daniel Menzel, who is overseas on holiday.

Sutcliffe was cut by the Dockers last week after playing 104 games for the Dockers, including the 2013 Grand Final loss to Hawthorn.

However the 26-year-old defender, who at times also played in a midfield role, managed just four senior games this season.

"Loved every second playing alongside some of the best people you will ever meet. Special thanks to everyone that supported me along the way, will always be grateful for the opportunity I received," Sutcliffe posted on Instagram when his delisting was announced. 

TIME IS RUNNING OUT Who needs a contract?

The Delisted Free Agency period opens on Thursday, November 1 when clubs will be free to sign players who have been cut by their previous clubs.

AFL.com.au reported last week the Tigers have encouraged Townsend to explore his options, but if he stays at Punt Road he could potentially be re-drafted as a rookie.
