Raheem Mostert requests trade from 49ers

Raheem Mostert's agent tweeted the following on Wednesday afternoon: "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."

Mostert was slated to play a major role in the San Francisco backfield this fall so if he actually does end up getting traded it would have serious fantasy implications. Tevin Coleman would stand to receive a huge boost in workload and value if Mostert is playing for another team before Week 1. It's unclear what kind of compensation the 49ers will be looking for to move Mostert. He flashed big play ability last season but has a limited track record and scary injury history.
