Stewart Crameri's AFL journey appears over after the 30-year-old was one of six players cut by Geelong following their elimination final loss to Melbourne.
After stints with Essendon and the Western Bulldogs, Crameri was thrown a rookie lifeline by the Cats late last year but struggled with injury and managed just four games.
He suffered an eye injury during the year and then was sidelined for the VFL finals due to groin soreness.
Former North Melbourne forward Aaron Black, Ryan Gardner, Cory Gregson, Timm House and rookie Matthew Hayball weren't offered contracts for the 2019 season either.
A popular figure at the Cats, Black appeared to have broken into the side in 2018, playing three games as a defender before he suffered a season ending ACL injury in round 12.
The 27-year-old played 50 games with the Kangaroos and seven games with the Cats after making his debut way back in 2011.
Injury has also restricted Cory Gregson's opportunities with the 22-year-old suffering a navicular injury and playing just 19 games in the past three seasons after playing 20 games in his first season in 2015.
The small forward kicked 20 goals in his 39 games and appeared ready to resume his career this season when he played nine games before a further footy injury sidelined him again.
House, Gardner and Hayball did not play a senior game during their time at the Cats.
The Cats are expected to do a deep analysis of their list after crashing out in the finals against Melbourne on Friday night.
Free agents Dan Menzel and George Horlin-Smith remain out of contract but have attracted interest from St Kilda and the Suns respectively.
Lincoln McCarthy has attracted interest from the Brisbane Lions as he ponders his future while Jordan Murdoch and Jackson Thurlow also remain unsigned.
