San Francisco 49ers postseason breakout celebrity Raheem Mostert asked a trade from the group after being unable to renegotiate his contract.
Agent Brett Tessler created the petition public on Wednesday after talks with the 49ers failed to result in a new deal to replace the three-year contract Mostert signed 2019 if he was mostly a special teams standout.
“After months of unsuccessful talks with the 49ers about reasonably adjusting Raheem Mostert’s contract (which compensated him for particular teams) we have asked a transaction,” Tessler wrote on Twitter. “Disappointing that it’d come to this for a guy who directed all NFL RBs in YPC & helped lead them into the Super Bowl.”
Mostert has a base salary of $2,575,000 this year and $2,875,000 next season as part of the deal he signed with the 49ers year. Fellow is set to be paid $4. 55 million this season despite having more than six conveys just once in the last five regular-season games and three playoff appearances following Mostert emerged as the team’s back.
The 49ers currently traded running back Matt Breida to Miami before this offseason, leaving Mostert, Coleman, Jerick McKinnon and Jeff Wilson as the veteran halfbacks on the roster. McKinnon has missed the previous two seasons with knee injuries.
After being cut by six teams and carrying the ball just eight times during his first three seasons in the NFL, Mostert was a key portion of San Francisco’s NFC championship in his fifth season in 2019.
He led the 49ers in rushing with 772 yards and ranked second in the NFL to Ravens quarterback Lamar Jackson by averaging 5. ) 64 yards per carry.
Mostert provided the signature operation of his career on the big point of the NFC championship game when he ran for 220 yards and four touchdowns at a 37-20 win over Green Bay that sent the Niners to the Super Bowl. Only Hall of Famer Eric Dickerson has rushed for more yards in a playoff match, with 248 for the Rams from Dallas on Jan. 4, 1986.
Mostert ran for 773 yards and 12 TDs in his final 10 games combined in the regular and postseason, easily eclipsing his small career totals before there.
He was hoping to get the featured part this season and wishes to be compensated for that.
