Default espn article

here is the article espn has posted...

Cornerback Phillip Buchanon, the Oakland Raiders first-round pick in the 2002 who had fallen out of favor with coaches and club officials in recent months, was traded to the Houston Texans on Tuesday night, ESPN.com has learned.

Details on what the Raiders received in return were not yet available.

The Raiders have been shopping Buchanon for weeks and discussed a possible deal with the Washington Redskins during the past week. Oakland also has been attempting to locate a suitor for its other starting cornerback, Charles Woodson, but hasn't found any takers.

Buchanon, 24, was the 17th player selected overall in the 2002 draft. While the former University of Miami star had slipped in the eyes of the Raiders, other teams felt he still retained playmaking skills and return abilities. In 14 starts last season, he had 59 tackles and three interceptions.

Another attractive element for the Texans is Buchanon's youth and his experience in a system that stressed a considerable degree of man-to-man coverage.

The Texans already have one outstanding young cornerback in Dunta Robinson, one of their two first-rounders in 2004 and a player many felt was the best rookie defender in the NFL last season. Their other starting corner, 11-year veteran Aaron Glenn, will turn 33 this summer. The trade ensures the Texans are prepared for the future at one of the game's high-commodity positions.

In 36 appearances with the Raiders, Buchanon totaled 122 tackles, 11 interceptions and 13 passes defensed. He returned four interceptions for touchdowns, at least one in every season of his brief career. He is also a dangerous punt returner, averaging 11.0 yards with three touchdowns on 72 runbacks.

Buchanon still has two years remaining on his original rookie deal, with base salaries of $700,000 for 2005 and $800,000 for 2006.

Deion Sanders couldn't tackle either. How many touchdowns did Buchanon give up over the last 8 games of the regular season?

Ok so the way i see it... he has 2 years remaining on his rookie contract $600,000 and $800,000 which i guess is not bad for a 3rd CB is he a solid nickel CB?

Heres the link!

I'm happy as long as we didn't give up the 13th. I guess someone will be moving to SS. Only bad thing bout this is that now the Texans have less of chance of drafting Thomas Davis (Bad for me)

Didn't we sign a nickelback a few weeks ago? Anyone think one of our CB's could be on his way out?

We are going to have some kind of secondary for the new no touch era. Dunta, Glenn, Buchannon, and Faggins can man up on any 4-WR combos.

He was solid his Rookie year, he got hurt and it went all down hill, he was getting good at returning punts and INts for TD's, but the guy is lazy, he doesnt work out, he causes alot of BS with the coaches, he cant tackle, he gives up too many big plays , IMO he will be a great nickle back, you guys got good CBs in Robison and Glenn, no way in hell he will beat them out for the job..

Buchanon's game has come a long way this past season. 2 years ago he was picked on routinely. He was not very impressive in the 1st half of 2004, but in the 2nd half of the season he really picked his play in terms of both range and consistency. I think he's on pace to be a heck of a corner in this league. I'll be interested to see what the Raiders got in exchange.

he should make a good nickelback. By the time his contract is up we should know if he's good enough to take over glenn's spot.

No great loss if it's the second. We ain't had much luck with them anyway. Anyone got a defensive splits link ? Their reporting their own 47 & the 78th. Starter at corner, very nice job CC.

I think this is a great trade. Look we have to have a way to stop freaking Payton. We need more cb's and db's. This tells me that CC is thinking that we are ready for a real push to the playoffs. Won't suprise me if we make another deal and either move up or trade 13 for a WR or RB.
