Former LSU tight end Foster Moreau finds out he has cancer during Saints visit
NFL tight end Foster Moreau posted on Twitter on Wednesday he was diagnosed with Hodgkin’s lymphoma during a physical with the New Orleans Saints.
Through somewhat of a miraculous process, this Free Agency period has been life changing for me. During a routine physical conducted by the Saint’s medical team down in New Orleans, I’ve come to learn that I have Hodgkin’s Lymphoma, and will be stepping away from football (1/3)— Foster Moreau (@fhmoreau) March 22, 2023
“I’m grateful for the support and thankful for people who have stood firm with me,” Moreau tweeted. “There hasn’t been a single step I’ve taken without hundreds of people lighting the path before me, and I will continue to seek their guidance.
The 25-year-old Moreau added he was stepping away from football for now and vowed to beat the cancer “and get back to doing what I love!”
Moreau is a free agent who played the previous four seasons for the Raiders, who took him in the fourth round of the 2019 draft out of LSU when the Las Vegas team was based in Oakland. Last season, he set career highs with 33 catches for 420 yards. Moreau also caught two touchdown passes.
In a tweet posted by the Raiders, the team showed its support for Moreau: “Your Raider family is with you, Foster.”
He started 14 games last season and 25 over the last two years. Moreau has 91 career receptions for 1,107 yards and 12 TDs.
