Free agent Grant Birchall has signed with Brisbane after 14 seasons — and four flags — with Hawthorn.
Birchall was offered a rookie contract by the Hawks but chose to move north like Luke Hodge before him.
Brisbane has given Birchall a one year deal with an option for more.
The 31-year-old has managed just eight games over the last three season due to a degenerative knee condition and a hamstring injury.
Hawthorn have been awarded no compensation for Birchall.
