49ersfan Posted July 20, 2021 Share Posted July 20, 2021 https://www.nbcsports.com/bayarea/49ers/49ers-depth-could-create-intriguing-raheem-mostert-trade-scenario Quote Mostert, however, could be an attractive pickup for a lot of teams heading into the regular season -- but only if the 49ers believe they have enough talented backs to manage without him. Mostert is scheduled to earn $3.225 million for the 2021 season. He enters the final year of his contract. Mostert broke out with the team in 2019 when he led the 49ers with 772 yards rushing with eight touchdowns. He saved his best for the NFC Championship Game, when he gained a club-record 220 yards and four touchdowns as the 49ers pummeled the Green Bay Packers. Quote Mostert is the 49ers’ best player who, conceivably, they could deal in order to create more draft capital for the future. The depth they created at running back this offseason gives them that kind of flexibility. Maiocco floating putting Mostert on the trade deadline, if the rest of the RB room shows up. On one hand, i get it - he's 29 and injury prone and we could save some cap space, although i'm not sure how much. OTOH, he's still a playmaker when healthy and we're not likely to get much for him anyway. Probably max a 5th. Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
