Raheem Mostert got what he wanted. This week, the 49 renegotiated the deal, giving him a signing bonus and incentives that could double his $ 2.875 million salary in 2020.
But the way he went backwards didn’t necessarily excite the 49s.
Mostert went public with a commercial application through its agent in early July.
“My reaction was, ‘What the hell are you doing?’ Come on now – Lynch said on KNBR this week, through Eric Brunch of Chronicle of San Francisco, “I wasn’t happy.”
Now everyone is good.
Mostert is said to be happy with the compromise, receiving more money a year after signing a three-year extension. It is assumed that the 49ers will have a happy Mostert, which had a breakthrough season in 2020.
Mostert rushed for 772 yards and scored 10 touchdowns in the regular season and added 336 yards with five touchdowns in the postseason.
“I love Rahim now and I love his family,” Lynch said. “It simply came to our notice then [negotiations]But I was a player, so I understand that you don’t talk directly to a player. You’re talking to an agent.
“And sometimes I think because of that there may be lost things in communication. What we eventually did [in revising his contract], we always planned to do, so it’s disappointing that this had to be transformed. But the cooler heads had to prevail and we had to understand that Raheem is a very important player for our team. “
