Sam Gilbert's career at St Kilda is over.
The 32-year-old has not been offered a contract at the Saints for 2019, bringing his 208-game career at the club to an end.
The veteran defender told St Kilda's website he will take the time to weight up his next step.
“I want to thank the club for the opportunity to play at the highest level, and for helping shape the person I am today,” he said.
“I have been privileged to be part of the club for the past 13 years, and I’ve loved every minute of it.
“I owe a lot to my coaches, teammates, and the St Kilda staff and supporters, and thank them for their friendship and support.
“I also want to thank my family for their incredible support, in particular my wife Georgie and my new baby boy Oscar.
“I will take my time to weigh up what’s next, but I respect the club’s decision and I hope the boys can achieve something special in the future.”
