Any thoughts on wether he would be worth a long shot? See if he gets his head right after the delisting?
Im not too sure how to pull up the statistics but I have liked most the games I have seen with him in. love a bit more aggression around the group.

MITCH Robinson is likely to be delisted by Carlton after minimal trade interest as the bull-at-a-gate midfielder tries to convince other clubs he is worth a punt.
Robinson was suspended several times in 2014 and, after lying to coach Mick Malthouse about a late-night fracas, was put up for trade.
Some interest from Brisbane led nowhere, but Robinson‘s manager Tim Hazell said Robinson was training hard and â€œin a good headspaceâ€.
Robinson had knocked back a midyear deal to try to boost his value, before a series of dramatic setbacks.
DEPARTMENT OF TRADE: WHO‘S GOING WHERE?
The Blues put talks on hold, then offered him for trade. Now his delisting is set to occur after the 2pm Thursday deadline.
Hazell said Robinson, 25 and with 100 games under his belt, was too good not to continue playing AFL.
â€œI don‘t think the door is closed on him but it‘s just a case of getting through the trade period and then clubs will see what they need and hopefully an opportunity presents for Robbo after that,‘‘ he said.

â€œClubs will review their lists and see whether they need a Robbo type. He is in good nick, he is training hard, he is certainly in a good headspace and so hopefully an opportunity presents.
â€œHis body is really sound. He has been doing a lot of boxing and running and footy work.â€
Robinson undertook some anger management workshops after his suspensions this year and believes he has those issues in check.
The first window for delisted free agents runs from November 1-11, and Geelong‘s Taylor Hunt is likely to join Robinson in that category.
His manager Anthony McConville said Hunt was unlikely to be traded but had not given up hope of finding a new home.
â€œThere is still a bit of time for that to play out but there is every likelihood that could happen. We will see how it unfolds in the next few days,‘‘ McConville said.
Hunt has taken down some of the best midfielders in the game as a tagger but was overtaken by Cameron Guthrie in that role for Geelong this year.Originally published as Blues prepare to set Mitch adrift
