Free Agent Tight End Diagnosed With Cancer Following Routine Physical

Foster Moreau, a former tight end for the Las Vegas Raiders, has announced that he is taking a break from football after being diagnosed with Hodgkin's Lymphoma.

Moreau, who is a free agent, received the news during a routine physical with the New Orleans Saints when he worked out for them last week.

The 25-year-old shared the news on his personal Twitter account, expressing his gratitude for the support he has received and his determination to overcome the illness and return to the sport he loves.

Moreau played four seasons for LSU before being drafted in the fourth round of the 2019 NFL draft. He's played in 61 games during his pro career, recording 33 receptions for 420 yards and two touchdowns in 2022 for Las Vegas.

He was expected to take on a starting role on a new team this year before his diagnosis.

Last week, Moreau visited with the Cincinnati Bengals and the Saints as he sought to find a team willing to take on his services for the 2023 season.

As he focuses on his treatment, there is currently no timeframe for when or if Moreau will be able to return to playing football.

Nonetheless, our thoughts and prayers go out to him, and we all wish Moreau a successful recovery and look forward to seeing him back on the field whenever he is ready. Photo Credit:  Orlando Ramirez-USA TODAY Sports
