RICHMOND has locked away 2019 premiership duo Jayden Short and Josh Caddy on fresh contract extensions.

The pair, who were set to fall out of contract at season's end, penned new deals on Tuesday, locking them in at the Tigers until the end of 2022.

Short, 24, has enjoyed a quick rise to one of the competition's most important running defenders after he was selected in the 2015 NAB AFL Rookie Draft.

Now at his third club, Caddy, 27, has become an integral member of Damien Hardwick's outfit after also tasting premiership success in 2017.

"We've really enjoyed Josh and Jayden's football development in their time at Richmond – they're now both premiership players, and they help to make us a better team," Tigers general manager of football talent Blair Hartley said. 

"They both bring great value both on and off the field, and we’re rapt they're continuing with us for two more years." 

Nathan Broad, Bachar Houli, Toby Nankervis and Marlion Pickett are the only remaining 2019 flag winners facing contract negotiations beyond this season.
