Buchanon's Return the Latest News



As the Jake Plummer story continues to unfold (see below), the news keeps coming. The latest: the Bucs have re-signed cornerback Phillip Buchanon to a two-year deal.

Buchanon joined the Bucs in October, joining the team as a free agent after being let go by the Texans. He eventually became a key cog in the secondary after starting cornerback Brian Kelly's season-ending foot surgery. With Kelly's future health not entirely certain, coupled with the fact Buchanon played well as the nickelback, the Bucs made retaining him a priority.

The former first-round pick out of Miami played in 14 games, starting four. He finished with 30 tackles and two interceptions.
