“I have always enjoyed my time under Seibs [coach Anthony Seibold], and I love what we are building here as a team,” Lodge said via the publication earlier this week.

“Obviously, I live down the street.” I am only 28, but it felt like 40. I have a lot of kids now, so I want to settle down.

“I would love to play some consistent footy and earn a deal.”

After rupturing his ACL in his right knee last season, Lodge returned to the field on Saturday for his first game of the season.
