The Bucs re-signed unrestricted free agent cornerback Phillip Buchanon on today. This is good news, as a former Miami Hurricane, Buchanon, who joined Tampa Bay last October after starting the season with the Houston Texans, played in 10 games (four starts) for the Bucs and finished with 28 tackles, two interceptions, seven passes defensed and one fumble recovery. This guy could be huge.
Buchanon, drafted in the first round (17th overall) of the 2002 NFL Draft by Oakland, has recorded 187 tackles and 13 interceptions, including four for touchdowns in 60 career games (38 starts). He also has 98 punt returns for 986 yards and three TDs and seven kickoff returns for 131 yards.
