In Round 3, Everitt stamped himself as a Swans player, leading the team to victory over the West Coast Eagles with 2 crucial goals in the last quarter.

Everitt also kicked one of the most famous goals at the SCG vs Geelong Cats. with less than a minute to go he kicked a goal from fifty right on the boundary to win it for the Swans.

At the end of the 2013 season, Everitt was traded to the Carlton Football Club. He spent three seasons with Carlton, playing a total of 52 games. He finished as the club's leading goalkicker in 2015 with 31 goals, but struggled with form in 2016 and was delisted in October.[3] He subsequently announced his retirement from AFL football in November.[4]

Everitt will return to play and co-coach at Somerville in the Mornington Peninsula Nepean Football League, his local club when he was a junior, from 2017.[5]
