The Dockers and Harley Bennell have mutually agreed to part ways ending his time at the football club.
Bennell said that he is not retiring in the hope he can get his body right and chase his dream to play at the highest level.
“I’m not retiring at this stage,” Bennell said.
“I’m going to work really hard on rehabbing my calf injury with a view to giving myself the chance to have another crack at playing for an AFL club.
“I firmly believe that I am capable of getting back out there and playing at the highest level.”
Fremantle General Manager of Football Peter Bell said the club believed they had done everything to help support Harley.
“It’s been an incredibly frustrating and disappointing period for Harley and the club trying to get his body right to play.
“Harley’s resilience and determination to overcome numerous set-backs has been amazing and a pointer to why he has indicated to the club that he wants to seek an opportunity elsewhere to play at the elite level.
“We believe we have done everything we possibly could as a club to support Harley during his time at Fremantle and we will continue to support Harley post his departure from the club, as we would with any former player."
