Buchanon played in all 16 games for the Redskins in 2010, registering 18 passes defended and two interceptions. Though not a major signing, Buchanon contributed to pass coverage in nickel situations and was an able-bodied NFL cornerback. 2011 started rough for Buchanon. He re-signed with the Redskins after the lockout ended and was forced to sit out four games for a banned substance violation.
