While Addo-Carr wanted to return to Sydney, where he originally grew up, he said it was time to try something new in an interview with the Bulldogs' club website.
“I wanted to step out of my comfort zone, come to the Bulldogs and help lead the club in the right direction” Addo-Carr said.
“I spent five years in Melbourne, I had some great memories there, but I wanted to try something new.”
He also said he hopes to become something of a leader at the club as they look to rebuild from their wooden spoon in 2021.
“Melbourne have got some outstanding leaders down there and I’ve obviously learnt off the best” he said.
“I’ve always wanted to help people and if I can help guide my teammates in the right direction and show them what it takes to win week-in-week-out and be consistent, that’s going to put a smile on everyone’s faces.”
