THE Brisbane Lions have eased the load on veteran captain Jonathan Brown by naming Jed Adcock as co-captain for the new season.

Adcock, 27 will share the captain's role with Brown, who has been the Lions' leader since 2009.

He becomes the eighth player in the history of the merged club to lead the team.

Tom Rockliff and Daniel Rich were also unveiled as the club's vice-captains.

Coach Michael Voss said he was happy with the new leadership group.

"Jed has demonstrated outstanding leadership over his time at the Lions, and most specifically in his past four seasons as a vice-captain," Voss said.

"As we know, Browny won't be around forever, and with Jed as co-captain, it will not only ease the load on Browny, but importantly they will both play a critical role in the continued development of Tom's and Daniel's leadership capabilities over the coming years."

The Lions play their first match of the year this Saturday in NAB Cup Round 1 against the Gold Coast Suns and Hawthorn at Metricon Stadium.
