The 49ers have agreed to terms on a five-year deal with defensive end Ray McDonald, ESPN’s Adam Schefter reports.
McDonald’s deal is worth $20 million, with $7 million guaranteed, Schefter adds.
A third-round pick out of Florida in 2007, McDonald has started nine of 56 games over the last four seasons, totaling 57 tackles, five quarterback sacks and an interception, which he returned 31 yards for a touchdown.
McDonald is projected to start at left defensive end in the 49ers’ 3-4 defense, with Isaac Sopoaga moving to nose tackle to replace Aubrayo Franklin, who is expected to move on in free agency.
