NEW ORLEANS (WVUE) - Two months after receiving a Hodgkin’s lymphoma diagnosis, former LSU tight end and New Orleans native Foster Moreau has signed a 3-year $12 million deal with the New Orleans Saints, according to ESPN.
Moreau’s diagnosis followed what was a routine physical performed by the Saints’ medical staff when he was in New Orleans on an official free-agent visit.
Moreau had initially said he would be stepping away from football, but he may be medically cleared sooner than expected.
