He capped off Wednesday’s media session with reporters with this explanation why: “I learn more and more every day when comes to my responsibility. This offseason was very eye-opening given what’s going on in our society with social injustice and inequalities among Blacks. In the past, I wasn’t really subject to that (discrimination) so I almost feel I couldn’t speak about it.
Working out a new contract with the San Francisco 49ers wasn’t the only thing Raheem Mostert had to do before deciding whether to play football this season. There was a much more important family matter to deal with as well. Mostert’s wife, Devon, is expecting the couple’s second child in September and will spend the season back home in Ohio with their 1-year-old boy while Mostert plays in the Bay Area.
The 49ers on Wednesday are likely to sign athletic defensive end Dion Jordan to provide depth and compete for a roster spot behind Nick Bosa, Arik Armstead and Dee Ford, a league source confirmed to The Bee. Jordan, 30, was the No. pick in the 2013 draft and never lived up to that billing.
