McDonald, 30, is a former second-round pick of the 49ers back in 2013. He was in the final year of his rookie contract when the 49ers signed him to a new five-year, $35 million extension, but he was later traded to the Steelers in exchange for a 2018 fifth-round pick.
In 2020, McDonald has appeared in eight games for the Steelers and caught nine passes for 61 yards receiving and no touchdowns.
