Foster Moreau recently wrapped up his 4th NFL season with the Las Vegas Raiders. Unfortunately, the LSU product and budding tight end star announced Wednesday evening that he is stepping away from football for the time being at the age of 25.

In a thread shared on social media, Moreau revealed he was recently diagnosed with Hodgkin’s Lymphoma during a physical as a part of free agency. Despite the diagnosis, Moreau shared a positive outlook in his message.

“Through somewhat of a miraculous process, this Free Agency period has been life-changing for me,” Moreau wrote on Twitter. “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 at this time to fight a new opponent: Cancer.

“I’m grateful for the support and thankful for people who have stood firm with me. There hasn’t been a single step I’ve taken without hundreds of people lighting the path before me, and I will continue to seek their guidance.

“That being said, I’ll go kick this thing’s ass and get back to doing what I love! AMDG!”

Moreau originally entered the NFL as a 4th-round pick for the Raiders in the 2019 NFL Draft. He has 91 catches for 1,107 yards in his 4 seasons and set career-high marks with 33 catches for 420 yards during the 2022 season.

At LSU, Moreau finished with 52 catches for 629 yards and 6 touchdowns from 2015-18. Our thoughts and prayers go out to Moreau as he begins his battle with cancer.
