Matt Prior concedes he could need to find another NRL club, as the St George Illawarra Dragons hierarchy consider a major end-of-season overhaul at the club.
With the Parramatta Eels a potential option, Prior is one of a number of players off contract for next year at the Dragons.
Boom centre Charly Runciman, sidelined with a hamstring injury, and star mid-season recruit Dugan are yet to make a commitment for 2014.
As part of a likely cleanout of the club, experienced halfback Nathan Fien is looking elsewhere and hooker Cameron King may leave the Dragons early, possibly to the Eels.
Matt Cooper is considering retirement after suffering a pectoral muscle tear on return from a toe injury which kept him out for much of the season.
Chase Stanley is another off-contract and it is believed he is looking elsewhere, while Evander Cummins and Leeson Ah Mau are likely to be on the way out.
