Squad changes[edit]

The 2012 AFL Draft contained a free agency trade provision for the first time. Fremantle was the first club to lodge a bid for a free agent when the put in a four-year offer to recruit Danyle Pearce from Port Adelaide.[3] As a restricted free agent, Port could have matched Fremantle's offer, but chose not to.[4]

During the trading and drafting period, the futures of Adam McPhee and Jack Anthony at the club were in doubt,[5] however McPhee signed a one-year contract extension in October.[6] On 20 November, two days before the National Draft, McPhee announced that he was retiring to return to Victoria and Anthony was delisted, despite having a year to go on his contract.[7]
