NEW ORLEANS (WAFB) - Former LSU and Raiders tight end Foster Moreau, who was diagnosed with Hodgkin lymphoma, has signed with the New Orleans Saints, the team announced Wednesday, May 10.

ESPN’s Jeremy Fowler first reported the deal is for three years and $12 million, including $8 million guaranteed and $3 million in incentives.

Moreau is from New Orleans and graduated from Jesuit High. He was originally a fourth round pick out of LSU by the Raiders in 2019. In four seasons with the Silver and Black, he had 91 catches for 1,107 yards and 12 touchdowns.

In March, he made it known he was diagnosed with Hodgkin lymphoma during a physical with the Saints. At the time, he vowed to beat the cancer “and get back to doing what I love!”

Moreau will be reunited with former Raiders quarterback Derek Carr, who the Saints signed in March.
