Raheem Mostert is one of Mike McDaniel’s guys so we have to trust him but I’m not holding my breath.

I’m nervous about Raheem Mostert. I realize he’s only here on a one-year deal not worth a ton of money. But man alive the guy has about a million knee injuries along with other injuries.

Don’t get me wrong, I want Mostert to be the speed freak he was back in San Francisco but typically when a guy has lower leg injuries, they lose a step. That’s only natural but Mostert has had chronic lower leg issues.

When he’s right, there aren’t that many more electrofying players in the game.

Mostert has a couple of the fastest runs over the last few years. He’s a threat to go the distance any time he touches the ball. He was built for the wide-zone scheme because he has terrific vision and also has zero problems cutting it back up inside and taking on and delivering punishment.

The #3 role is perfect for a guy like Mostert at this stage of his career. Getting 20 touches a game is no longer a thing for him. But, getting perhaps 10, now that is possible. It’s possible if he can stay healthy.

As per Raheem Moster;

I’m glad rehab is going great. I can’t wait to see how fast he can when everything becomes real in a month. Wearing the Miami Dolphins colors should offset some of the knee issues and make Mostert still really fast.
