Due to getting glandular fever during the 2013 NAB Cup, Broomhead had to wait until Round 13 in 2014 to make his debut, coming on as a substitute against Western Bulldogs at Etihad Stadium.[1] Broomhead remained in the side for the following game against Hawthorn and started as the substitute again but came on early during the second quarter replacing Tom Langdon with concussion. The following week he was dropped and returned to the VFL.

In round 2, 2018 against Greater Western Sydney at the Melbourne Cricket Ground, Broomhead suffered a broken leg when he kicked the goal post after attempting to soccer the ball through.[2] At the conclusion of the 2018 season, Collingwood delisted Broomhead, stating they will re-draft him as a rookie if he is available.[3] A month later, Collingwood re-drafted Broomhead as a rookie with pick 17.[4]
