49ers sign Raheem Mostert to a three-year deal

The special teams ace isn’t going anywhere

NFL: Oakland Raiders at San Francisco 49ers Stan Szeto-USA TODAY Sports

From Raheem Mostert’s agent, Brett Tessler:

Despite strong interest elsewhere, restricted free agent RB Raheem Mostert just agreed to a three-year deal with the San Francisco 49ers... Wanted to continue building on what he started there. Thanks to John Lynch, Kyle Shanahan, and Paraag Marathe for the opportunity!

Mostert is a speedy guy that is an excellent special-teamer. One of the best in the game. That is the fourth commitment to a running back this year. They all have one thing in common: They are fast.

Mostert ran sub 4.4 40-yard dash at his Pro Day, too. He’s most famously remembered for covering a punt against the Texans where he was fined for a textbook tackle. Remember this?

That’s beautiful. It’s a good move to extend the special teams ace. He’s a big part of what the 49ers do in that phase of the game. We’ll keep an eye out for the contract details and get everything updated.
