Saints host former LSU, Raiders tight end Foster Moreau on a free agent visit

We’ll file this under “Made Too Much Not To You”. The New Orleans Saints made contact Saturday with former LSU Tigers and Las Vegas Raiders tight end Foster Morrow, who made a formal free agent visit to a team facility in Metairie. According to ESPN’s Field Yates, Saints director of college scouting Jeff Ireland was a fan of him coming out of Baton Rouge, and Morrow was a favorite target of Derek Carr with the Raiders – he averaged 2.6 and 3.6 goals per game over the past two years.

It doesn’t mean a signing is imminent, but it makes a lot of sense. Morrow is a capable blocker who could push Adam Trautman into a role that focuses more on what he does best (pave the way on run plays) while complementing Juwan Johnson as the dominant tight end. With Johnson handling the lion’s share of receiving duties while Morrow chips in as both a receiver and blocker, being an all-around player, he could be a nice addition to the offense.

We’ll see if anything develops on this front. Morrow previously met with the Cincinnati Bengals, and his free agent tour isn’t over yet. The Saints are in a good position to make a competitive offer of more than $16 million in salary cap space, but Johnson needs to match the role Johnson has been willing to invest in the position following the two-year extension.
