Delisted Kangaroo Dom Tyson has opened up on his exit from North Melbourne, speaking on his battles with injury and praising how the club went through the processes to let him go.

Tyson, who joined Taylor Garner, Will Walker and Connor Menadue in not being offered a new deal past 2021 on Thursday, was limited to just the six appearances for North Melbourne across three seasons at Arden Street due to ongoing knee issues.

The former No.3 overall pick moved to the Kangaroos at the end of the 2018 season from Melbourne after previous stints with the Demons and Giants.

The 28-year-old joined the Kangaroos with an already extensive injury history, hoping to rekindle his best form with the struggling Shinboners.

Speaking on SENTyson doubted whether his AFL career would continue into the 2022 season, but revealed he was "comfortable and content" with how his career had transpired.

“I’ll let the dust settle and make sure this knee rehabs up OK,” he said.

"If my manager was to do a little ring around, I wouldn’t stop him.

“But at the same thing I’ve been a bit banged up lately and you can’t keep banging your head against the wall and trying something that may have passed you by.

“I’m comfortable and content with where my career has landed."

Tyson commended how coach David Noble and football boss Brady Rawlings conducted his exit interview, thanking the club's professionalism and complimenting their direction.

“It’s always difficult when you roll into the GM’s office and there’s no contract on the table for you,” Tyson said.

“The injuries started piling up for me and I could see the writing on the wall.

"The club were absolute pros about it, with ‘Nobes’ and Brady, having a really respectful conversation.

“The club is in great hands to be honest."

The aforementioned quartet's exit is the first major list call for the Kangaroos amid their rebuild.

The club delisted 13 players at the end of last season, with the club being criticised by outgoing players for their handling of exit interviews.

Tyson managed just three matches for the Kangaroos this season, one of which coming as an unused medical sub in Round 6, his final appearance for the club.
