Pickett and Carlton agreed to him walking away and being delisted after he lost the drive to play the game at the highest level after a string of injuries.

The former number 4 draft pick, who was traded to Carlton at the end of 2016 has battled a patella tendon injury and broken arm in his time at Carlton since being recruited from GWS.

Pickett came to Carlton as a tack-on to the Blues trade for Caleb Marchbank and in fact helped reduce the trade price asked for Marchbank as the Giants needed to reduce their salary cap.

The 22-year-old small forward played just 17 games for the Blues.

“Both parties have made the decision to part ways now in order to allow Jarrod to get back home to his family,” Carlton List Manager Stephen Silvagni said.
