Priddis, 32, announced on Friday he will hang up the boots at the end of the 2017 AFL season. 

The 2014 Brownlow medallist was contracted for next year, but elected to call time early. 

"I had a couple of days where I was very emotional. Telling the boys was very emotional," Priddis said.

"It took me a long time to get on the list, but the one thing I did want to do was get the most out of myself."

"This is an amazing organisation. It was a childhood dream to be able to play for this team."

Priddis has played for the Eagles his entire career, making his AFL debut in 2006.

He has made over 230 AFL appearances and will be looking to help the Eagles make the finals in 2017.
