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.

It's been the better part of a decade since Alex Smith and Colin Kaepernick were part of the same quarterback room with the San Francisco 49ers, but Smith still sounds as impressed as ever with what he experienced on and off the field when the two of them were teammates. Smith spoke for almost an hour this week on Kaepernick and a number of other subjects during a guest spot on the 10 Questions With Kyle Brandt Podcast (click here to listen). Smith, who was the starting quarterback for the 49ers when Kaepernick was selected in Round 2 of the 2011 NFL Draft, told Brandt he remembered Kaepernick as a "great dude" who brought an impressive work ethic to the NFL right out of the gate. "We were doing workouts

2020 was a fairly forgettable season for the 49ers, but there were still three catches along the way that were memorable enough to be included in the NFL's collection of the top 100 catches of the year. The collection was released to the NFL's YouTube account on February 19 and included catches from wide receiver Kendrick Bourne, tight end Jordan Reed, and tight end George Kittle, with Reed and Kittle's catches cracking the top 20. Here's a look at the 49ers catches that made their list. C.J. Beathard and Kendrick Bourne's meaningless-but-still-cool Hail Mary completion (ranked 68th overall) This play came as time expired in the 49ers' 41-33 loss to the Dallas Cowboys on December 20. Chances are it would have ranked higher had it



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

By David Bonilla
Feb 28, 2021

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,
