Former Raiders TE Foster Moreau signs 3-year deal with Saints after good prognosis over cancer

Great news today for Foster Moreau. The former Raiders tight end discovered Hodgkins lymphoma cancer during a physical with the New Orleans Saints in March. His first response, naturally, was to take a step back from football.

Today, however, Moreau surprisingly signed a three-year, $12 million contract with those same Saints after receiving a positive diagnosis.

Now Moreau is optimistic that he will play this season and continue his NFL career, which is fantastic news.

The LSU alum and New Orleans native also plays for his home team, which makes this story that much more poignant.

As it happens, Moreau will also join Derek Carr in New Orleans as the only quarterback he’s played with in his career.

The former Raiders fourth-round pick caught 91 passes for 1,107 yards and 12 touchdowns in four seasons with Derek Carr in Oakland and Las Vegas. Now they can pick up where they left off.
