NFL Player Learns Shocking Diagnosis In Free Agency Health Exam

Posted by

NFL tight end Foster Moreau, who played with the Las Vegas Raiders the last four seasons, said Wednesday he discovered he had Hodgkin lymphoma during a routine free-agency health exam. The player had been visiting several teams for next season, but is now sidelined to “fight a new opponent,” he wrote on Twitter.

“Through somewhat of a miraculous process, this Free Agency period has been life changing for me,” Moreau wrote on Twitter. “During a routine physical conducted by the Saint’s 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.”
