Cameron Brate played through significant injury in 2019

Dirk Koetter wasn’t lying when he eluded to this weeks ago

NFL: New Orleans Saints at Tampa Bay Buccaneers Jonathan Dyer-USA TODAY Sports

Cameron Brate didn’t really look like himself during the 2018 season for the Tampa Bay Buccaneers, especially in the second half. Some were wondering what’s wrong with Brate and now we have an explanation.

Playing through a major hip injury and still gutting it out every week, shows the type of character and toughness Brate has. Previous head coach Dirk Koetter did indeed mention late in the season that Brate was playing through an injury and he clearly wasn’t lying. You could tell he wasn’t himself week in and week out and this is a pretty good reason as to why.

Brate now has 8 months to recover and get ready for the Bruce Arians Era in Tampa Bay.
