While on a free agent visit with the New Orleans Saints, former Las Vegas Raiders tight end Foster Moreau was diagnosed with Hodgkin’s Lymphoma. According to the tight end, it was discovered by the team’s medical staff during a routine physical. He also announced he will be stepping away from playing football. In his social media post, he ended the statement with “That being said, I’ll go kick this thing’s ass and get back to doing what I love! AMDG!” First he will focus on getting healthy and then turn his focus back to football.
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)

The 25-year-old Foster Moreau was taking free agent visits and likely planning on his next destination to play professional football. He has spent his entire career with the Raiders and started getting more snaps last season with the team. There were a few teams interested in giving him an expanded role in their offense, but for now, he will be focused on beating cancer.
This past season with the Las Vegas Raiders, Foster Moreau caught 33 passes for 420 yards and two touchdowns on 54 targets. He also recorded two rushing yards last season with Las Vegas. We here at Def Pen Sports wish Moreau the best in his recovery and hopeful return to the football field.
