Frampton played only three games for Port Adelaide, including two this year, but booted 34 goals in 14 SANFL matches this past season.

Jacobs' departure to Greater Western Sydney opens a spot for Frampton, but his best career form has so far been in attack.

Frampton inked a two-year deal with Adelaide, with conditions in place that could trigger a third season. 

His agent, Andrew McDougall, of Corporate Sports Australia, told that Frampton was "really excited" about joining the Crows. 

"(Adelaide's) Justin Reid and (Port Adelaide's) Jason Cripps worked through it really amicably and professionally, and they got the deal done today, which is fantastic for Bill," McDougall said. 

"It's given him a fresh start and opportunity to play AFL for the Crows, and it's a great time to go to Adelaide, with the younger group they're going for and some changes they're making there.

"He's an Adelaide boy and actually grew up supporting the Crows. He learned a lot at Port and was grateful for the opportunity with them as well. 

"He's played only a few games at AFL level, but he's shown he can really clunk a mark."
