Saints visit with former LSU tight end Foster Moreau
Foster Moreau has spent the past four seasons in Raiders colors, catching passes from Derek Carr. Might that combination continue to connect in Saints attire?
The veteran free agent tight end visited the New Orleans facilities this weekend, after making a stop in Cincinnati last week.
If he chose to go with the Bengals, the former Jesuit and LSU standout would be reunited with former college teammate Joe Burrow from the 2018. Either way, it seems he could not go wrong.
The 6-foot-4, 250-pound Moreau snared 46 passes for 550 yards and five touchdowns in his final two seasons as a Tiger (2017-18). While with the Raiders, he was on the receiving end of 91 passes for 1,107 yards and 12 scores in 61 NFL games.
Set to 26 years old May 6, Moreau earned $2.54 million with Las Vegas in ’22. He was targeted 54 times, catching 33 passes for 420 yards and a pair of touchdowns despite often serving as second fiddle to then-starting tight end Darren Waller.
Saints exective Jeff Ireland has been intrigued with Moreau since the player’s days at LSU. Moreau is a strong blocker and reliable receiver.
The Saints do return veterans Juwan Johnson and Adam Trautman at the position, but the latter may bean area where the team wants to upgrade for at least increase competition for snaps. Tight end has been a position that the organization has targeted for improvement entering the 2023 season.
