Rapoport: Raheem Mostert reaches out to 49ers to ‘clear the air’

Jul 20, 2020 at 10:50 AM--

Raheem Mostert and his agent, Brett Tessler, announced on July 8 that they had requested a trade from the San Francisco 49ers. The two are unhappy with the running back's current three-year contract, which is barely entering its second year.

There is no doubt that Mostert is underpaid. He isn't even the highest-paid running back on the roster. That would be Tevin Coleman, despite Mostert being expected to bear most of the workload this season.

Mostert is scheduled to earn a base salary of just $2.575 million in 2020 and won't become a free agent until 2022.

Rookies are scheduled to report to training camp tomorrow. Quarterbacks and injured players will arrive on Thursday. Mostert and the others are slated to report next week.

Mostert recently reached out to the 49ers, according to Ian Rapoport of NFL Network. It sounds like the two sides hope to move forward, but Mostert and his agent remain hopeful that a new deal can be worked out.

Mostert led the 49ers with 772 rushing yards and eight rushing touchdowns on 137 carries last season. His 29-carry, 220-yard, and four-touchdown performance against the Green Bay Packers in the NFC Championship Game helped lift San Francisco to a Super Bowl appearance.

Rapoport: 49ers and Raheem Mostert are in 'a lot better place' since trade request

On July 8, San Francisco 49ers running back Raheem Mostert and his agent requested a trade after months of what they described as "unproductive" contract negotiations. Mostert is scheduled to earn a base salary of $2.575 million in 2020, which is the second year in the three-year deal he signed last offseason. By comparison, running back Tevin Coleman leads 49ers running backs in earnings with a 2020 base salary of $4.55 million. The request led many to speculate on Mostert's NFL future, and whether or not his time with San Francisco could come to an end. It seemed unlikely, however, that the 49ers would grant his trade request without another team offering something they could not refuse. That probably wasn't going to happen with so much uncertainty surrounding

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
