If he gets one more concussion, he's almost guaranteed to retire considering how close he came last time. If he's gimped up in non-concussive ways, then it becomes more muddled.
If he stays healthy and they bring him back, I'd guess they'd offer a 2-3 year deal with heavy incentives (assuming the CBA keeps 35 as the age where those contracts are permitted).
Performance bonuses can only be included in 1 year contracts, and I doubt that will change in the coming CBA.
I agree though, we'll look to keep McDonald around, but it will be 1 year contracts with heavy bonuses. No way will we be giving him a 4 year contract, and I doubt that McDonald will be looking for one either.
