NEW ORLEANS (WVUE) - Former LSU tight end and New Orleans native Foster Moreau is stepping away from football after a cancer diagnosis.

Moreau posted to Twitter on Wednesday, announcing he was diagnosed with Hodgkin’s Lymphoma, and will be stepping away from football.

“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,” Moreau tweeted.

The medical condition was discovered during a routine physical with the Saints, who were hosting Moreau on a free-agent visit.

He was teammates with Joe Burrow and Ja’Marr Chase during the 2018 season and stayed with the Raiders for four seasons after being taken in the fourth round of the 2019 NFL Draft.
