Foster Moreau reportedly agrees to 3-year, $12M deal with Saints amid Hodgkin lymphoma recovery

May 10th, 2023

Former Las Vegas Raiders tight end Foster Moreau said he was stepping away from football after his diagnosis with Hodgkin lymphoma in March. Two months later, he’s in recovery and set for an amazing comeback.

The New Orleans Saints are signing Moreau to a 3-year, $12 million contract, according to ESPN’s Jeremy Fowler.

Moreau will reportedly get $8 million guaranteed and is expected to return to the field this season. He’ll join former Raiders quarterback Derek Carr in New Orleans.

Last season, the 26-year-old recorded a career-high 33 catches for 420 receiving yards and two touchdowns.

In what Moreau called a “miraculous” development of his free agency, an anomaly in his physical for the Saints led to his diagnosis. Hodgkin lymphoma is a relatively aggressive form of cancer involving the body’s immune system.

After becoming one of the most productive tight ends in LSU, Moreau was drafted 137th overall by the Raiders in 2019. He spent the last four seasons with the team.
