Former LSU Tigers tight end Foster Moreau discovered he has cancer. But his message to fans promotes positivity and a perspective worth promotion.
We often enjoy exploring related topics but are not solely focused on the LSU Tigers. Such was the case in our recent look at the new season of Disney’s The Mandalorian. Today, we’re exploring Foster Moreau’s attitude after his awful news.
After a physical with the New Orleans Saints, Foster Moreau was diagnosed with Hodgkin lymphoma. As a result, the LSU Tigers alumnus will step away from football and focus on his treatment.
LSU Tigers fans cannot help but feel sorry for Moreau and his family. His physical with the Saints was before his free agent signing with the team. However, instead of returning to Louisiana to play football, the blocking tight end will temporarily hang up his pads.
Foster Moreau has every reason to be angry at his diagnosis. But instead, the New Orleans native took to social media with a grateful message.
Moreau is promoting his missed opportunity with the New Orleans Saints positively. Indeed, one cannot help but wonder how different Moreau’s future would have been if a team of doctors did not examine him. Moreau earned his opportunity to sign with a new team after a successful tenure with the Las Vegas Raiders. But what if he didn’t?
What if no team was interested in Moreau’s services, and the tight end wasn’t issued a routine NFL team physical? How many days and months go by before his illness is detected? What’s worse is wondering how much damage cancer does to his body during the lost time.
Foster Moreau’s reaction to his diagnosis demonstrates his consideration of such a ‘what if’ scenario. Nevertheless, Moreau considers himself lucky because of the circumstances that prevented his next NFL contract.
Moreau’s perspective is respectable and much-needed in a society plagued with negativity. LSU Tigers fans are proud to call Foster Moreau ‘one of us’ and will think about him throughout the season.
Foster Moreau spent four years with the LSU Tigers as a blocking tight end and special teams specialist. The Raiders drafted him in the 4th round of the 2019 NFL draft. Moreau appeared in 61 NFL games with 91 receptions, 1,107 yards, and 12 touchdowns.
