Cameron Munster and Ben Hunt have put pen to paper, but there are still a staggering number of players off-contract at the end of the 2023 season, with all players in that group able to negotiate and sign with rival clubs from today.

November 1 has arrived, and silly season is here in the NRL.

From Mitchell Moses and Matt Burton with player options for 2024, to Jeremiah Nanai and Brian To'o, there is plenty of off-contract talent for clubs to make a play at.

All up, 198 players are either off-contract or have player options in their contract, meaning they can negotiate from today.

The Canterbury Bulldogs have the toughest job ahead with 16 players able to negotiate, while the Melbourne Storm have 15. The only clubs with under 10 players able to negotiate are the Gold Coast Titans, Manly Sea Eagles, New Zealand Warriors, Dolphins and Wests Tigers.

Zero Tackle have compiled the full list with every player off-contract, as well as each club's current 2024 roster.

Brisbane Broncos

The Broncos have 11 players who can negotiate with other clubs in the current window. There is little doubt that the most keenly pursued out of the group are going to be Herbie Farnworth, Thomas Flegler, Tesi Niu and Corey Oates.

Canberra Raiders

The Raiders have 12 players who can hit the negotiating table, of which 4 are player options. Arguably, two of those four are their most important players in Tom Starling and Jack Wighton. Jordan Rapana is another key player coming off-contract, while Jarrod Croker could extend his time at the club with a player option for 2024.

Canterbury Bulldogs

The Bulldogs have one of the longest lists when it comes to players who now have the power to negotiate, and the biggest name among them is Matt Burton, who has a player option for 2024. It's unclear who out of the rest of the squad Cameron Ciraldo will want to keep around as the blue and white continue to rebuild.

Cronulla Sharks

The Sharks have 12 players off-contract at the end of the 2023 season, with none of the group holding a player option. Big questions loom around the number one jumper, with William Kennedy and Lachlan Miller both off-contract, while Siosifa Talakai and Jesse Ramien are likely to be priorities for the club. Winger Sione Katoa is also off-contract, while young forwards Royce Hunt and Teig Wilton could both command upgrades.

Manly Sea Eagles

The Sea Eagles have nine players available to negotiate from November 1, with Reuben Garrick the most hotly-pursued so far - though word is he's just been offered a massive extension by the club.

Melbourne Storm

The Storm have 15 players off-contract at the end of 2023, with the list headlined by forwards Nelson Asofa-Solomona and Tui Kamikamica.

Shaun Johnson and Ben Murdcoh-Masila bring experience, but have struggled with performance, while there are other fringe players on the list. Jazz Tevaga and Bunty Afoa are likely to be the two highest priority players to retain.
