North Melbourne continued to shore up their list, re-signing defender Jamie Macmillan on a two-year deal that will keep him at the Kangaroos until the end of 2015 season.
Veteran forward Daniel Wells and young star Jack Ziebell recently won contract extensions through to the end of 2016 while Shaun Atley signed until 2015.
Coach Brad Scott was given a vote of confidence by the AFL club last week when they announced he'd signed a new deal tying him to the Kangaroos until the end of 2016.
Macmillan said the Kangaroos were confident of the direction they were headed in.
"We're all pretty close and its hard to explain, but I think we all have a good feeling about where were going and we have absolute confidence in Brad," Macmillan told the North Melbourne website.
The 20-year-old played every game last year and is aiming to become more flexible and diverse in 2013.
Macmillan said he planned on playing a bigger role in the team and had a clear sense of his aims.
"Last year was about laying some groundwork and learning the basics of the game, and that's given me some confidence," he said.
"I'm the kind of guy who never really feels settled, but from day one of pre-season I've had some really clear goals about what I wanted to do and how I wanted to improve."
