Please Send Raheem Mostert to the AFC, Thanks
Raheem Mostert dominated the Green Bay Packers last season. Mostert rushed for 220 yards and blew up on the scene going off against Green Bay. He had a great postseason for San Francisco and was one of the stars of the team in the postseason. Mostert is not paid like a top running back. He is a cog in the Kyle Shanahan machine. People don’t seem to realize that the Shanahan system, Kyle or his ultra tan dad Mike, will not pay for running backs. They just insert the next guy in and he’s somehow good. Remember Mike Anderson? Remember Olandis Gary? Yeah, random dudes that older Shanahan made better. Mostert is good as gone which is a good thing for the Packers…. As long as he goes to the AFC.
After months of unproductive talks with the 49ers about fairly adjusting Raheem Mostert's contract (which paid him for special teams) we have requested a trade. Disappointing that it would come to this for a guy who led all NFL RBs in YPC & helped lead them to the Super Bowl.

My assumption is the 49ers will send him to an AFC team if the bridge is burned. It does appear to be the case. If so, that’s a huge win for the Packers. Mostert did tear up the Packers, but this also makes the Niners a bit worse at the start of the season. Could another running back pop onto the scene and it will be like Mostert never left? Absolutely. San Francisco is quietly having a shit offseason. They did have a good draft, traded for Trent Wlliams. But since then, Deebo Samuel has a Jones fracture in his foot and Mostert wants out. NOT GREAT, BOB!
We’ll see if Mostert is on the move.
