TE Foster Moreau signs with Saints after lymphoma diagnosis

The New Orleans Saints agreed to terms with free agent tight end Foster Moreau on a multi-year contract Wednesday.

Specific terms of the deal were not disclosed by the team, however Foreau’s representation said the contract was for three years and $12 million.

JL Sports confirmed details of the deal with ESPN on Wednesday, including $8 million in guarantees and up to $3 million in incentives.

The Saints showed a picture of Moreau signing his contract on Twitter. Moreau was wearing a Team Gleason “No White Flags” shirt and New Orleans Pelicans star Zion Williamson’s Jordan 1 Low “Voodoo” sneakers while putting pen to paper.

The shirt honors the charity foundation managed by former Saints star Steve Gleason and his family.

Moreau, 26, spent his first four seasons with the Raiders, and he will be reunited in New Orleans with former Las Vegas quarterback Derek Carr.

Moreau stepped away from football in March after revealing his diagnosis with Hodgkin’s lymphoma. According to ESPN, the New Orleans native and former LSU player has received a positive prognosis for his cancer recovery and is planning to play in 2023.

Moreau recorded 33 receptions for 420 yards and two touchdowns in 15 games (14 starts) with Las Vegas in 2022. In 61 career games (34 starts), he has 91 catches for 1,107 yards and 12 scores.

He was a fourth-round pick in the 2019 draft. –Field Level Media
