Vance McDonald has made his first catch even though he is still three months off from his regular-season debut with the San Francisco 49ers.
The tight end, drafted in the second round 55th overall, got the lay of the land in his new city quickly and proposed to his longtime girlfriend Kendi Davis last month on the Golden Gate Bridge.
“I was like, 'What better spot than the bridge?’” McDonald said, according to Cam Inman of the San Jose Mercury News.
McDonald had wanted to pop the big question but decided to wait until after the draft to see where his career was taking him. So, he got down to business on May 20.
"We got out to the bridge at 8 (p.m.) and it was so cold," McDonald said, per the report. "She was bundled up and I was just in shorts and a T-shirt.
"We started on the north side at Vista Point. I wanted to go to the middle of the bridge, but it was getting dark and really cold. We made it to the first tower, and I gave my phone to girls that were behind us for a picture."
