Fremantle veteran Matthew Pavlich has revealed he offered to quit earlier this season, only to be talked out of it by coach Ross Lyon and football operations manager Chris Bond.

Pavlich offered to walk away after the AFL club's round-five loss to Carlton, which left the Dockers with a 0-5 record.

Lyon and Bond were keen for Pavlich to play on, and the 34-year-old will notch his 350-game milestone in next week's home clash with Sydney.
