"I’ve got a great bunch of mates here, our coaches and all the support staff are first class and I have no doubt here is where I will play my best football."
Andrews was ruled out for up to six weeks following a hamstring tear suffered against Collingwood last Friday night, an injury that could keep him out of the Lions' team until the preliminary final should they get that far.
Now in his sixth season, the Brisbane Academy product has played 110 games and developed a firm bond with coach Chris Fagan.
"Fages has been terrific for me," Andrews said.
"I really enjoy catching up with him to pick his brains on all matters football and I’m happy to say I’ll be driving him mad for a long time to come."
