NFL tight end Foster Moreau announced on Twitter Wednesday that he was diagnosed with Hodgkin lymphoma during a physical with the New Orleans Saints.

“I’m grateful for the support and grateful to the people who stood by me,” Moreau wrote on Twitter. “There hasn’t been a single step I’ve taken without hundreds of people lighting the way ahead of me, and I will continue to seek their guidance.

The 25-year-old Moreau added that he was retiring from football for the time being and promised to beat cancer “and get back to what I love!”

Moreau is a free agent who played the previous four seasons with the Raiders, who took him in the fourth round of the 2019 draft out of LSU when the Las Vegas team was located in Oakland. He set a career high with 33 catches for 420 yards last season. Moreau also caught two touchdown passes.

In a tweet released by the Raiders, the team showed its support for Moreau: “Your Raider family is with you Foster.”

He started 14 games last season and 25 over the past two years. Moreau has 91 career receptions for 1,107 yards and 12 TDs.
