Raheem Mostert earns highest speed rating among running backs in Madden NFL 21

Jul 14, 2020 at 12:32 PM--

Two NFL players tied for the highest speed rating among running backs in EA Sports' latest installment of the popular multi-platform football video game, Madden NFL 21. One, Matt Breida, is a former San Francisco 49ers running back, and the other, Raheem Mostert, has requested a trade away from the Niners if the two sides can't agree on a reworked contract.

Both Breida, now with the Miami Dolphins, and Mostert earned speed ratings of 95, according to our friends over at @TheSFNiners. Below is the complete list of the top-10.

Mostert led the team with 772 rushing yards and eight rushing touchdowns on 137 carries last season. Many took serious notice after the running back's 29-carry, 220-yard, and four-touchdown performance against the Green Bay Packers in the NFC Championship Game, helping lift the 49ers to a Super Bowl berth.

"My hunger, right now, more than ever, is so pure," Mostert said in May while noting that he spent this offseason gaining muscle in anticipation of an increased workload. "I want to just get back to that level and exceed what I did last year, times ten. That's just my mindset, right now."

Mostert entered the NFL after signing with the Philadelphia Eagles as an undrafted free agent out of Purdue in 2015. He initially signed with San Francisco on November 28, 2016, and then signed a new three-year deal on March 15, 2019. Mostert is entering the second year of that deal.

Raheem Mostert has some big aspirations. The biggest football-related one might be the San Francisco 49ers running back being motivated by Canton. He hopes to have a good enough career to one day find himself in the Pro Football Hall of Fame. If last season's Green Bay Packers defense were the voters, Mostert might be a shoo-in. The former undrafted player rushed for 220 yards and four touchdowns on 29 carries against the Packers defense in the NFC Championship Game, helping to punch the 49ers' ticket to Super Bowl LIV. "[The performance] really opened up my eyes," Mostert said in April. "[I said], 'Hey look, I did this. Why stop? Just keep going. Keep doing the right

San Francisco 49ers tight end George Kittle expressed some dissatisfaction with some of his ratings in the latest installment of the popular multi-platform football video game, Madden NFL 21. His biggest issue wasn't narrowly being denied membership to the highly-coveted "99 Club" within the game, though. Kittle's biggest gripe seemed to be his breaking-tackles rating of 81, which tied for second on the team. "If Deebo (Samuel) has a higher breaking-tackles rating than me, that's just not okay," the tight end said. "It's Deebo, isn't it?" Yes. The second-year wideout owns a rating of 83 in that category. "Sure, whatever," Kittle added. "I think I led the

Fans are eager to see what Raheem Mostert can do while taking on a bigger workload during the upcoming season. The San Francisco 49ers running back has been preparing for that, you know, assuming the team doesn't trade him and assuming there is a season to be played. "Right now, I'm just building myself up," Mostert told reporters in May. "I'm actually gaining some more muscle, which is kind of bizarre just because I haven't really been able to think about gaining muscle because I've already had muscle like that. "Just trying to incorporate those things in my daily workouts, so that way, I'm able to take those hits and be one of those guys getting 200
