San Francisco running back Raheem Mostert has received a restructured contract from the 49ers. After requesting a trade in the offseason due to a contract dispute, the two sides have reached a new agreement.
ESPN’s Adam Schefter reported the news via Twitter on Monday.
49ers and RB Raheem Mostert restructured his contract. There will be no trade nor holdout.
“Happy we got things worked out and looking forward to him having another great season there,” said Mostert’s agent, @TesslerSports. “Thanks to the organization for taking care of him.”

The new deal means Mostert will rescind his request for a trade completely, and will not hold out of the 2020 season.
Mostert was a big piece of the 49ers run to the Super Bowl last season, especially in the playoffs. He was part of a multi-faceted running attack. His eight rushing touchdowns and 772 yards were not as high as they could have been, but the Niners offense was about throwing opposing teams off balance with multiple sets.
It appears that trend will continue as Mostert is now happy with San Francisco. The team will try and finish what they started next season.
