49ers Trade Vance McDonald, Draft Pick To Steelers For 4th-Round Pick

Most of that production came last season, leading to a three-year, $19.65 million contract in December that came from the previous administration.

Johnson was originally drafted by the in 2009 and spent four seasons with the Steelers and then two seasons with the San Diego Chargers before returning to Pittsburgh.

During his four years by the Bay, the second-round pick played in 48 games (30 starts) while racking up 64 receptions, 866 yards, and seven touchdowns.

One of the few weak links on their offense was the tight end position.

Steelers coach Mike Tomlin says he wants more consistency at tight end.

"The guys haven't been consistently varsity enough for our comfort", Tomlin said Tuesday.

49ers trading TE Vance McDonald and a fifth-round pick to the Steelers for a fourth-round pick, per sources. Jesse James and Xavier Grimble, despite showing flashes, were inconsistent catching passes in training camp. According to him, the tight ends they now have on the roster "hadn't been consistently varsity enough" this offseason. Ladarius Green, who was signed to help the team replace retired Heath Miller, appeared in just six games and was released in the offseason.

McDonald will likely take over that role at some point. Pittsburgh will begin their regular season in Cleveland, on September 10.

"We're not going to anoint him in any way, going to put him in uniform like the rest of them". "How much he is able to handle, how long that process is, is up to him". Some competition there. We'll quickly get him up to speed as soon as we get him here, and proceed with the process of acclimating him not only to what to do, but how we go about our business here.
