49ers finalize new deal for Raheem Mostert; RB can now earn over $5 million in 2020

Jul 27, 2020 at 10:59 AM--


The San Francisco 49ers have finalized a new deal for Raheem Mostert, according to the running back's agent, Brett Tessler. It includes "plenty of extra incentives as well as a bonus," according to ESPN's Adam Schefter.

"Happy we got things worked out and looking forward to him having another great season there," wrote Tessler. "Thanks to the organization for taking care of him."


Mostert was scheduled to earn a base salary of just $2.575 million in 2020. He can now earn over $5 million in 2020, according to Tom Pelissero of NFL Network. Mostert remains in the second year of the three-year deal initially signed on March 15, 2019, as the contract length was not altered.


Mostert plans to report to training camp tomorrow for COVID-19 testing, as scheduled.


Tessler announced on July 8 that he and his client had requested a trade from the 49ers after what was described as months of unproductive contract negotiations. A report by Ian Rapoport stated that Mostert is merely seeking to become the 49ers' highest-paid running back. Tevin Coleman, who will earn a base salary of $4.55 million in 2020, the final year of his two-year deal, was the team's highest-paid back before Mostert's reworked contract was finalized.

Mostert led the team with 772 rushing yards and eight rushing touchdowns on 137 carries last season. San Francisco earned a Super Bowl berth thanks in large part to the running back's 29-carry, 220-yard, and four-touchdown performance against the Green Bay Packers in the NFC Championship Game.

Mostert entered the NFL after signing with the Philadelphia Eagles as an undrafted free agent out of Purdue in 2015. He spent time with several teams before landing with the 49ers on November 28, 2016.

49ers' Kyle Shanahan refers to artificial crowd noise as 'human torture,' Raheem Mostert calls it 'different'

The final episode of this season's "Brick by Brick" may have been one of the more entertaining I can remember during the Hard Knocks-style online series' run. Most fans probably enjoyed listening to (likely very edited) defensive line coach Kris Kocurek mic'd up. However, watching head coach Kyle Shanahan try to endure the artificial crowd noise being pumped into Levi's Stadium as his team practiced was riveting. Fans will not be allowed to attend Week 1's matchup between the 49ers and Arizona Cardinals at Levi's Stadium. In lieu of real crowd noise, simulated noise will be pumped through the sound system. It may not necessarily be what fans hear on their televisions at home,

Many are eager to see running back Jerick McKinnon take the field for the San Francisco 49ers this season. That includes fans, coaches, and teammates. Maybe not the Arizona Cardinals. One of McKinnon's teammates who can't wait to see the running back finally step back onto the football field is Raheem Mostert. Mostert has been with the 49ers during the entire Kyle Shanahan era and remembers what McKinnon was supposed to bring to the offense when the team signed him in 2018. An ACL injury has prevented McKinnon from taking a regular-season snap with the 49ers, but that may change on Sunday. Mostert joined 95.7 The Game on Wednesday and discussed what McKinnon brings to Shanahan's offense. "He adds a lot. He's very versatile coming out of
