1 year, league minimum. No way he'd get signed to a long term deal with an 8 game suspension.

long term with little gtd is a boon to the team. I'm sure McDonald didn't want that, but Miami could have tried for it. Anyways 1 year low amount works too. Basically gives us a safety who can step in week 8 if anybody gets hurt like last year.

Looks like it's not for the league minimum after all, but it is still a one-year deal.

How does that work with the squad roster limit? Would we have to keep a spot in the 53 open for him, or do we just need to find room when the suspension is lifted?

nope, only have to open a spot when he is off suspension. Somebody will be on IR by then.
