Derek Carr has expressed his support for Foster Moreau, saying he is praying for the tight end after the cancer diagnosis. On Wednesday, Moreau revealed that during a routine physical with the New Orleans Saints, the Saints medical staff discovered Hodgkins lymphoma.
Moreau, 25, is stepping away from football while he is battling cancer. For four seasons, Moreau and Carr were teammates with the Las Vegas Raiders. "Love you and we are here for you, praying for you brother!" Carr tweeted.

Carr, Moreau were hoping to become teammates with the Saints
After the Raiders released Carr, the veteran quarterback signed with the Saints.
Moreau, who also became a free agent after the 2022 season, was visiting with the Saints and hoping to resume his career in New Orleans. But then, a physical revealed cancer in Moreau's body. “Through somewhat of a miraculous process, this free agency period has been life changing for me.
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!” Moreau wrote on Twitter. Moreau, who was drafted in 2019, spent his first four seasons in the NFL with the Raiders. In each of those four seasons, Carr was throwing passes to Moreau.
Hopefully, Moreau will beat cancer and return to football in the near future. It remains to be seen if Moreau and Carr can become teammates again in the future.
