Saints’ Tight End Foster Moreau Reflects on Crucial Drop
Saints tight end Foster Moreau experienced an influx of emotions after dropping a potential game-tying touchdown pass in Thursday night’s game against the Jaguars. The 26-year-old player, who successfully battled cancer to make his return this season, admitted that the play put him in a “dark place.”
Foster Moreau, Saints’ tight end, was devastated by his late drop, acknowledging the impact it had on him emotionally. Despite his personal struggle, his teammates offered support and reminded him of his resilience in overcoming cancer.
With just seconds remaining on the clock, Moreau had an opportunity to help the New Orleans Saints secure a tie during “Thursday Night Football.” However, the touchdown pass slipped through his fingertips, resulting in a 31-24 loss for the team.
Moments after the game, Moreau, seemingly on the verge of tears, expressed his disappointment in his own performance on the critical play. He described his effort as “unacceptable” and “pathetic.”
However, Moreau’s teammates, including superstar running back Alvin Kamara, rallied behind him, insisting that the drop was not the sole reason for the team’s loss. Kamara, who personally approached Moreau after the game, reminded him that his experience pales in comparison to his own fight against Hodgkin’s Lymphoma.
“I just told him, man, he’s blessed for what he’s been through,” Kamara shared. “That ain’t nothing.”
Despite the devastating drop, Moreau can find solace in the fact that his teammates continue to support him. The 3-4 Saints will have an opportunity to bounce back when they face the Indianapolis Colts on October 29th.
