49ers have discussed contract extensions for Kendrick Bourne, Raheem Mostert, per report

Jul 1, 2020 at 10:41 PM--


The San Francisco 49ers are in no danger of losing last season's breakout running back, Raheem Mostert, anytime soon. He doesn't become an unrestricted free agent until 2022. Fourth-year wideout Kendrick Bourne, however, is scheduled to become a free agent next year after signing a one-year tender in April.

The 49ers have had discussions about contract extensions for both players, according to Matt Barrows of The Athletic.

"I know extensions for Mostert and Bourne have been discussed," Barrows wrote in this week's mailbag column. "... Bourne is scheduled to be an unrestricted free agent next year, which is an incentive to get a deal done before March. Mostert becomes an unrestricted free agent in 2022 but, considering his contributions on special teams and on offense, is underpaid. That's the incentive to get a new deal done with him."

How far those discussions have gone, though, is anyone's guess.

Mostert led the team with 772 rushing yards and eight rushing touchdowns on 137 carries last season. He added two touchdown receptions, too, showing off his versatility. It was, however, his 29-carry, 220-yard, and four-touchdown performance against the Green Bay Packers in the NFC Championship Game that made everyone take notice.

Bourne recorded a career-high five touchdown receptions on 30 catches that went for 358 receiving yards last year. He proved to be a reliable target for quarterback Jimmy Garoppolo. Twenty-three of Bourne's 30 receptions resulted in either a first down or a score. Nothing changed during the postseason. He hauled in six passes in the playoffs, five of which went for either a first down or a touchdown.

"I've become a full-fledged Bourne backer," wrote Barrows. "He has far exceeded his expectations as an undrafted free agent and was Mr. Clutch for the team last season."

San Francisco 49ers running back Raheem Mostert spoke with reporters for 20 minutes today via a video conference call. The running back has a reworked contract that he is more comfortable with, and plans to play this season, even amid a pandemic. It wasn't an easy decision, though. Much discussion, and even a few tears, went into it (more on that here). Mostert, however, feels it was best for his family. He is, after all, its provider. And now, he can make more money in the process. There had been reports that the running back wanted more money following a breakout year during which he became a featured component of the 49ers' No. 2 ranked

'We have some unfinished business': Raheem Mostert discusses 49ers mindset on KNBR

Much has been said of the San Francisco 49ers' upcoming revenge tour. The team is looking to redeem itself for February's heartbreaking defeat in Super Bowl LIV when it was minutes away from finally winning the franchise's sixth championship. Maybe "revenge tour" isn't the right term, with all due respect to All-Pro tight end George Kittle. Raheem Mostert prefers to think of it as the 49ers having some unfinished business. The running back joined KNBR on Thursday morning and shared his thoughts on the team's mentality heading into an uncertain 2020 season. "Like I said in those calls yesterday, our mindset right now is we left some stuff out there on that field in the big stage," Mostert told Mark Willard and Paulie Mac, "and what better way to go
