Dolphins re-signing RBs Raheem Mostert, Jeff Wilson to two-year deals

Raheem Mostert and Jeff Wilson are running it back in Miami.

The two running backs have each agreed to two-year deals, NFL Network Insider Tom Pelissero and NFL Network's Cameron Wolfe reported on Tuesday, per sources.

Mostert's two-year contract is worth $5.6 million and includes $2.2 million in guaranteed money, per Pelissero.

Wilson's deal carries a maximum value of $8.2 million, per Wolfe.

As a running back nearing his 31st birthday, Mostert wasn't in line to sign a long-term deal anywhere. But as his 2022 production proved to the Dolphins, Mostert still has the juice. The eight-year veteran enjoyed his best season since his breakout 2019 campaign, rushing 181 times for 891 yards (4.9 per carry) and three touchdowns while posting a career-high 31 receptions for 202 yards and two receiving scores.

He also paired quite nicely with the fellow former 49er in Wilson, who joined Mostert in Miami at the trade deadline last season and formed a dynamic rushing duo that accounted for 831 yards between Weeks 9 and 17.

Miami appeared to be headed toward dire straits at running back entering 2023, with Mostert, Wilson and Myles Gaskin all headed toward unrestricted free agency at the start of the new league year. Since then, the Dolphins have found a way to keep Mostert and Wilson on team-friendly deals, retained restricted free agent Salvon Ahmed, and still have some room to accommodate another piece if they so desire.

In one day, Miami went from looking at a mostly bare cupboard to a couple of familiar, trusted spices refilled to the brim. All that's left is to get back to cooking.
