49ers & RB Raheem Mostert Agree To Restructured Deal

     

Brett Tessler, the agent for 49ers RB Raheem Mostert, announced Monday that they’ve agreed to a restructured contract.

According to Adam Schefter, Mostert did not have any new years added to his reworked deal and he’s still tied to San Francisco for the next two years.

Schefter reports that Mostert, who is due $2.575 million in base salary, receives a $300,000 signing bonus and can now earn up to an additional $2.75 million in bonus and incentives.

Mostert previously requested a trade out of San Francisco after contract talks went nowhere.

However, Mostert reportedly spoke to a high-ranking member of the team to try and clear the air last week. 

Mostert had requested a raise to bring his salary in line with teammate and 49ers RB Tevin Coleman‘s deal, which will pay him around $4.5 million in 2020. 

The veteran running back still has two more years left on the extension he signed last year with San Francisco and won’t be an unrestricted free agent again until 2022. 

The 49ers traded RB Matt Breida to the Dolphins during the draft. Their backfield currently consists of Mostert, Coleman, Jeff Wilson and Jerick McKinnon.

Mostert, 28, wound up signing on with the Eagles as an undrafted free agent out of Purdue back in 2015. He had brief stints with the Dolphins, Ravens, Browns, Jets and Bears before signing on to the 49ers’ practice squad in 2016.

The 49ers brought Mostert back on a one-year exclusive rights contract in 2018 before tendering him a restricted offer in 2019. He later signed a three-year, $8.7 million extension

In 2019, Mostert appeared in all 16 games and rushed for 772 yards on 172 carries (5.6 YPC) and eight touchdowns to go along with 14 receptions for 180 yards receiving and two more touchdowns.
