Tampa Bay Signs Former Texan

Released by the Houston Texans Monday, cornerback Phillip Buchanon has signed with the Tampa Bay Buccaneers.

The Bucs are hoping the former first-round draft pick of the Oakland Raiders will help their injury-depleted secondary. The Bucs are thin at cornerback because starter Brian Kelly is injured and backups Juran Bolden and Torrie Cox are also banged up.
