49ers RB Raheem Mostert wants a speed upgrade in Madden NFL 21

Feb 20, 2021 at 7:19 PM--

With a speed rating of 97, 49ers running back Raheem Mostert is already one of the fastest players available in the latest installment of the Madden NFL video game series, Madden NFL 21. But apparently, he thinks he should be rated even higher.

And, truth be told, Mostert has a point. Mostert was clocked by NFL Next Gen Stats as having the two fastest runs of the 2020 season -- an 80-yard touchdown against the Jets in Week 2 during which he was clocked at 23.09 MPH and a 76-yard catch against the Cardinals in Week 1 that saw him reach 22.73 MPH. Mostert posted highlights of the two runs to his Instagram account Saturday, along with a request to have his Madden NFL 21 score raised to a maximum mark of 99.

"@eamaddennfl, Ima need that speed rating at a 99 😏🏎💨💨 Please and thank you," Mostert wrote.

Mostert isn't the first NFL player to request his speed rating get raised to 99. Kansas City Chiefs wide receiver Tyreek Hill also made that request in 2018 and wound up getting his rating raised to 99 after speaking to someone with game publisher EA Sports. Hill is currently the game's fastest player, followed by Raiders receiver Henry Ruggs at 98 and Mostert, Ravens receiver Marquise Brown, Eagles receiver Marquise Goodwin, and Chiefs receiver Mecole Hardman at 97.

Time will tell if Mostert is successful with his request. But if anyone deserves to be put on the same level as Hill, it's Mostert. Mostert was a standout on the track in college at Purdue, once posting a 10.15-second mark in the 100-meter dash and a 20.65-second mark in the 200-meter dash. Hill once ran a 200-meter time of 20.14 and a 100-meter time of 10.19 while also once reaching sub-ten second time in the 100-meter dash with a tailwind. Hill's fastest run during the 2020 season reached a peak speed of 21.91 seconds.

Chris Simms sees three options for 49ers to upgrade at QB

The most probable scenario is that the San Francisco 49ers enter the 2021 season with Jimmy Garoppolo under center. While general manager John Lynch has recently committed to that as the current plan, it hasn't stopped the rampant speculation that the team continues to seek an upgrade. NBC Sports' Chris Simms has been vocal about his concern surrounding Garoppolo's availability. The quarterback has missed 23 games over the past three seasons due to injuries. When he is in there, though, the 49ers are successful. The obvious case in point is the 2019 campaign during which Garoppolo started all 16 games for the first time in his NFL career, helping guide the 49ers to a 13-3 record, the NFC West crown, and a Super Bowl appearance. Simms feels San Francisco could

Bengals likely to host 49ers if NFL adds 17th game to schedules

NBC Sports' Peter King offered some scheduling insight into what will likely be a 17-game season in 2021. The NFL continues negotiations with broadcast partners on a new television deal, and the networks and league are working on the assumption that the regular season will increase by one game. Until now, there has been speculation on where those 17th games will take place. We already knew that each NFC West team would be matched up against the AFC North opponent with the same spot in its standings from this past season. That means the San Francisco 49ers taking on the last-place Cincinnati Bengals in 2021. King is hearing that the AFC will be hosting all 16 of the

The Sports Business Journal is reporting that the NFL is getting close to finalizing its new media deals for the rights to broadcast or stream future games. Things could cross the finish line as early as this week and then be announced next week—possibly earlier. It sounds like Fox will retain the rights to NFC games on Sundays, but there has reportedly been some pushback from the network on the asking price—over $2.2 billion per year for 11 years—which doubles that of the previous deal. As reported earlier, Amazon Prime Video looks poised to secure the exclusive rights to simulcast Thursday Night Football on its streaming platform,

Dak Prescott won't be going anywhere this offseason — or for the foreseeable future. The quarterback is staying with the Dallas Cowboys. The two sides have agreed to a new deal. Most didn't feel Prescott would actually become a free agent next week, but it is still a pretty significant name taken off the list of possibilities. Jori Epstein of USA Today first reported the news of the deal. ESPN's Adam Schefter elaborated on the report, sharing some of the new deal's numbers. Prescott will sign a four-year contract reportedly worth $160 million, which includes $128 million guaranteed and a $66 million signing bonus. It can be worth up to $164 million, adds
