Foster Moreau Signs With New Orleans After Positive Update on Hodgkin’s Lymphoma Battle
On Wednesday afternoon, ESPN’s Jeremy Fowler delivered some excellent news regarding tight end Foster Moreau. According to Fowler, the tight end — battling Hodgkin’s Lymphoma — received a good prognosis on his recovery. Good enough for the Saints to agree to terms with Moreau on a three-year, $12 million deal.
Moreau will receive $8 million guaranteed in the deal with the Saints.
The former Las Vegas Raiders tight end Foster Moreau stepped away from football after being diagnosed with Hodgkin’s lymphoma in March. The New Orleans Saints medical staff discovered the cancer during a routine physical.
Moreau announced the news on Twitter in March: “Through somewhat of a miraculous process, this free agency period has been life-changing for me,” Moreau wrote on Twitter. “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 at this time to fight a new opponent: Cancer.”
“I’m grateful for the support and thankful for people who have stood firm with me. 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. That being said, I’ll go kick this thing’s ass and get back to doing what I love! AMDG!”
The news of the diagnosis for Moreau was terrible to hear. Moreau is just 26 years old. He was a fourth-round pick by the Raiders in the 2019 NFL Draft. Moreau posted a career-high 33 receptions for the Raiders in 2022.
