Former Las Vegas Raiders tight end Foster Moreau shared earlier today that he will be stepping away from football to focus on a cancer diagnosis that was discovered by the New Orleans Saints medical team. 

"Through somewhat of a miraculous process, this free agency period has been life changing for me," Moreau wrote. "During a routine physical conducted by the Saints' medical team down in New Orleans, I've come to learn that I have Hodgkin's Lymphoma, and will be stepping away from football ... at this time to fight a new opponent: Cancer. 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.

"That being said, I'll go kick this thing's ass and get back to doing what I love! AMDG!"

A fourth-round selection of the Raiders in the 2019 NFL Draft, Moreau has racked up 91 receptions for 1,107 yards and 12 touchdowns over the course of his career.
