Raheem Mostert Signs New 2-Year Contract to Stay in Miami
3 weeks ago

The 31-year-old running back has agreed to a new deal that will keep him in a Dolphins uniform through the 2025 season.

On Friday afternoon, the Miami Dolphins and Pro Bowl running back Raheem Mostert agreed to terms on a new two-year contract worth up to $9 million. The nine-year veteran is coming off a career season in which he rushed for 1,012 yards and 18 touchdowns (which led the NFL), averaging a stellar 4.8 yards per carry. Mostert’s previous deal—which saw him earn a base salary of $2.35 million—was set to expire after the 2024 season.

 

Although Mostert will be 32 by the time the NFL season kicks off in September, one year ago, he was the first running back at the age of 30+ to record a 1,000-yard rushing season since Adrian Peterson did it in 2018. Mostert has been particularly productive in Miami, where he has recorded his two most prolific rushing seasons and also notched his first and only career Pro Bowl selection. Mostert has been able to stay relatively healthy, too, which had been a problem for him during his years with the San Francisco 49ers.

 

With Miami looking to advance past the Wild Card round—where they have lost each of the past two seasons—Mostert figures to play a huge role in a rushing attack that has excelled since his arrival in South Beach. Paired with second-year man De’Von Achane, the Dolphins’ backfield figures to feature one of the league’s most explosive tandems once again in 2024.

 

Coming off a season in which he led the league in rushing touchdowns and finished within the top five in fantasy scoring, Mostert’s extension only further cements his status as a solid, plug-and-play fantasy RB1. Although it might be difficult to expect the same level of touchdown production in 2024—mainly due to health and the rise of Achane—Miami’s high-octane attack figures to bode well for Mostert’s fantasy outlook.
