Top-five draft pick Jarrod Pickett has quit Carl­ton to re­turn to fam­ily in WA.

Pickett, who was taken fourth over­all by Greater West­ern Syd­ney at the 2014 draft, didn’t play a game for the Gi­ants in two sea­sons, but man­aged 17 matches for the Blues af­ter a trade in 2016.

He didn’t fea­ture this sea­son af­ter surgery on a rup­tured patella ten­don in De­cem­ber.

The club cited his lack of mo­ti­va­tion as the rea­son for the mu­tual de­ci­sion.

“Both par­ties have made the de­ci­sion to part ways now to al­low Jarrod to get back home to his fam­ily,” Blues list man­ager Stephen Sil­vagni said.

Jarrod Pickett has left Carl­ton.
