Everyone says that things happen for a reason and this is a great example of that. Check out the former Raider who was recently diagnosed with cancer! Foster Moreau was a 6’4″ tight end out of LSU before joining the Las Vegas Raiders. Drafted by the then Oakland Raiders in the fourth round back in 2019. Foster signed a 4 year deal worth about $3 million that included a bonus close to $500,000.00.

Although Foster had a relatively quiet career at LSU, it was at the 2019 Senior Bowl where Foster got the attention of the Raiders. Since signing, the kid from New Orleans, played sparingly, but made the best of it. Needless to say, four years goes by quickly and Foster found himself to be a free agent. Hoping to hook up with his hometown team, the New Orleans Saints, he went back home for a tryout.

As all players must do, Foster went through a routine team physical and that’s when he found out. It was discovered that Foster Moreau had Hodgkin’s Lymphoma.  Of course this meant he would have to take a “time-out” from football. It was then that the 25 year old tight end decided to leave the game of football all together to take on a different battle.

However, Foster says that he is ready and will “kick this thing’s ass” and get back to doing what he loves to do. He went on to say that with everything that he’s done in life, he’s always had a great support system. He will need it as he takes on a type of cancer that affects the lymphatic system — part of the body’s germ-fighting immune system.

It’s a tough call, but good new is that there is an 89% survival rate. With Foster being young and in good shape, the former Raider is very optimistic on returning to pro football. Just know Foster that Raider Nation is behind you and sending positive thoughts and prayers!
