Buchanon had received some other offers and even changed agents a couple times over the summer, but ultimately, he decided to stay in D.C. to serve as a nickel cornerback alongside DeAngelo Hall and Josh Wilson. Buchanon, 30, picked up two interceptions in the role last season. The former Oakland Raiders first-round pick will be entering his 10th season in the league next year.
