It has been a tumultuous year for Foster Moreau, the fourth-year NFL tight end out of LSU.
After jumping into free agency following the end of his rookie contract with the Las Vegas Raiders, the New Orleans Saints expressed interest in him because of his size, blocking ability, and camaraderie for the last few years with new quarterback Derek Carr.
Little did Moreau or the organization know after the March 2023 physical examination that the New Orleans native would be diagnosed with Hodgkin’s Lymphoma. Not only did this surprise Moreau, but the organization was placed in a unique circumstance at finding a blocking tight end until a decision on his health could be determined.
Regardless of Moreau’s health, the tight end has openly expressed his wish to move forward with his playing career. Soon after the diagnosis, other teams eventually reached out to him in terms of finding out his status with the most recent move being an undisclosed offer from the Saints, which will hinge on his physical clearance.
The Saints could end up offering the 26-year-old Jesuit alum a non-football injury designation, a move that would provide an opportunity to be on the team until clearance.
While there will be competition during training camp and the organization seems comfortable on the receiving end with Juwan Johnson, having a two-tight-end system with their running attack should make Moreau’s presence wanted.
Moreau has not committed yet, but some coercion from Carr and being home might be more beneficial than other options that may come his way.
