San Francisco 49ers running back Raheem Mostert has finalized a new contract with the team, his agent announced Monday.
Earlier this month, agent Brett Tessler announced he had requested that the 49ers trade his client because of unproductive contract talks. However, the situation changed on Monday as Tessler tweeted:
“Just finalized a new deal for Raheem Mostert with the San Francisco 49ers. Happy we got things worked out and looking forward to him having another great season there. Thanks to the organization for taking care of him.”
Details of the contract were not immediately known, but before the deal, Mostert was scheduled to be paid a base salary of $2.575 million this season and was due $2.875 million in 2021 as part of a three-year contract he signed last year. Based on average annual value, Mostert was the 49ers’ fourth-highest-paid running back, behind Jerick McKinnon ($7.5 million), fullback Kyle Juszczyk ($5.25 million) and Tevin Coleman ($4.25 million).
Mostert led the 49ers with 772 rushing yards last season and scored 10 touchdowns (eight rushing, two receiving). In three playoff games, he rushed for 336 yards with five touchdowns. He set a 49ers franchise record with 220 rushing yards in his team’s 37-20 NFC Championship Game victory over the Green Bay Packers.
He led the NFL with 12 rushing touchdowns from Week 12 through the end of the 2019 postseason. His 760 rushing yards over that span were the second most in the league, trailing only the Tennessee Titans’ Derrick Henry, who had 1,154.
