Associated Press
ALAMEDA, Calif. -- Cornerback Phillip Buchanon is so frustrated with the way the Oakland Raiders are operating that he wants to be traded.

Buchanon, the Raiders' first-round draft pick in 2002 out of Miami, said he spoke with team personnel chief Michael Lombardi to express his desire to go elsewhere.

"The way I am feeling about the Raiders, I am not happy," Buchanon said Wednesday. "I am just not happy with the organization right now. I am looking forward to a possible trade with somebody else."

I wonder if we could trade for him, he would be a good nickel back until AG got ready to retire, but the question is, what would we trade, maybe a draft pick or 2. :hmmm:

After seeing him get smoked by our WRs this season I'd rather have Faggins at the nickel.

He talks like a shutdown corner, but walks like he's a first round bust

Yeah, I think he has shown bust potential. But maybe he just needs a fresh start.

i just don't know what happened to phillip, he had a great start in oakland but got injured. last year he never regained his old form. coming out of college he had all the tools to be a great corner, but has yet to reach his potental. i have never been one of those guys that said that we can't get someone because he isn't a "capers guy", but i can tell you that phillip isn't a capers guy.

This guy thinks hes good , hes too small , he cant tackle , or cover really well, sure he gets some picks but them makes it up for giving up bombs , im kinda of glad he wants to leave..

Warren Sapp was on a radio show out here basically calling him an ***** for bringing this up three days before the last game.
I have been dissapointed in him since he has been here, both him and Woodson have had bad years. But the good thing about Woodson is, he will make a good safety at some point!

Not if he has size and tackling issues like Android said...

Woodson will play again just not with the Raiders perhaps.

Well Woodson is great cover corner , he has been playing without any pressure on the qb and still has been holding WR's to 3 or 4 catches a game... now thats a difficult task to do thats why i can tell he is a great corner in the NFL , but PB ... i dont know what to say about this guy , i tried to support him , but this stupid **** makes it clear , god get him out of here , trust me if any of you watch his game you will know what us oakland fans know... this guy is smaller than some high school players..

I thought we had a thread about Buchanan in the archives. Nice foresight by Buff Soldier.

I wonder if we could trade for him, he would be a good nickel back until AG got ready to retire, but the question is, what would we trade, maybe a draft pick or 2.

We got him. For a second and third rounder.
