Bulldogs winger Josh Addo-Carr has been linked to a surprise early exit from the struggling club, despite being contracted for another two seasons.
Addo-Carr represented New South Wales this season, but apart from that, it’s been a disappointing year for the flyer and his club side.
Considering the form of the Bulldogs, its little wonder Addo-Carr has been unable to show his best, and at times it has appeared he’s been playing at less than 100%.

Veteran journalist Brent Read suggested that a number of rival clubs have inquired about the representative winger and whether he’d be keen to greener pastures.
“There was a CEO meeting last week and there was a bit of talk there that Josh Addo-Carr might be on the move or might be up for grabs,” Read told Triple M.
News Corp reported there were some suggestions that a third party had been shopping around the flyer to rival clubs including the Tigers.
But, Read said: “As I understand, his agent has come out and denied that so Josh is going nowhere which will disappoint some clubs because when some clubs heard that it sort of piqued their interest and they thought they may be a chance of getting Josh.
“It has been a difficult year, he hasn’t been at his best, although no one has been at the Dogs.
“There was just a bit of mail going around and some CEO’s were talking about it but his agent has slammed the door shut on it … He’s content at the Bulldogs.
“There will be some movement there in the off-season. There will be plenty of boys moving, but Josh Addo-Carr won’t be one of them.”
