Foster Moreau inks contract with Oakland Raiders
[Kim Klement – USA Today Sports]
Former LSU tight end Foster Moreau has reportedly signed a 4-year, $3 million contract with the Oakland Raiders, per NFL insider Adam Caplan.
Moreau, the No. 137 overall pick, will also earn 488,484 in signing bonuses. While at LSU, Moreau was an effective blocker, but also proved to be a capable receiver. He recorded 52 receptions for 629 yards and 6 touchdowns during his 4-year career.
On the same day as signing Moreau, the Raiders also parted ways today with veteran tight end Lee Smith. No. 18 is headed out West and it looks like he’s there to stay.
Moreau was LSU’s first drafted tight end since Keith Zinger in 2008.
