PFF names 49ers' running back battle as one to watch after Raheem Mostert requests trade

It's entirely likely that the San Francisco 49ers don't grant Raheem Mostert's trade request, and the running back ends up leading the team's ferocious rushing attack this season. He was a breakout surprise last year — and really, in the playoffs — and has earned an increased workload going forward. Mostert's $2.575 million base salary for 2020 is second to Tevin Coleman's $4.55 million among the Niners' backs, if you don't count fullback Kyle Juszczyk, of course. The team also has Jerick McKinnon, who head coach Kyle Shanahan was high on after signing him in 2018.

Some have been critical of Raheem Mostert's agent requesting a trade given the sample size of work the San Francisco 49ers running back has on his resume. Others respect Mostert's game and have no problem seeing him get paid what he seemingly deserves. Mostert may not have started a game last season, but that just means he wasn't the running back out on the field when the 49ers offense took its first snap. He still led the 49ers with 772 rushing yards and scampered into the end zone eight times while carrying the football and twice more after hauling in passes. Mostert is clearly the best running back on the roster, and his agent, Brett Tessler, wants the 49ers to pay his client like it. One analyst, Bucky Brooks of NFL Media,

It took three months, but former Carolina Panthers quarterback Cam Newton finally found a new NFL home. The former NFL MVP signed a one-year deal with the New England Patriots and will compete with 2019 fourth-round pick Jarrett Stidham and 11-year veteran Brian Hoyer for the starting job in Foxborough. Newton hasn't been guaranteed the Patriots' starting job, according to Jeff Howe of The Athletic. Newton is coming off a Lisfranc fracture, and NFL teams haven't been able to perform a physical on the quarterback due to the offseason restrictions because of the COVID-19 pandemic. With
