McCarty was the Red Bulls’ captain last season, his fifth with the team and 10th in the league. He earned his first MLS All-Star and MLS Best XI selections. The midfielder scored two goals in the regular season and recorded a career-best eight assists.

Felipe joined New York last season. He had three goals, including a game-winner at Portland in September, and five assists. The Brazilian was the only player to start all 34 regular season games for New York, which had the league’s best regular-season record for the second time in three years.

Perrinelle returns to the Red Bulls after not having his option picked up at the end of 2015. The 31-year-old Frenchman steadied a young backline that allowed the fewest goals in the Eastern Conference.
