Tuesday Roundup: Buchanon Added

The 'Skins made another signing yesterday, adding eight year veteran CB Phillip Buchanon.

Buchanon has played for five teams in seven seasons (last year with Detroit). The 'Skins got him on the cheap, signing him to a one year deal worth $1.5 million.

Essentially, he replaces the recently departed Fred Smoot as the team's nickel corner unless Justin Tryon or Kevin Barnes improve upon their 2009 efforts.

Not a big deal, but the 'Skins needed depth and Buchanon provides it. Matt Mosley from ESPN's NFC East blog is a fan.

Buchanon is a former first round draft pick by the Oakland Raiders and has 18 career INTs (11 of them coming in his first three years). He played under current Skins GM Bruce Allen in Tampa and in Oakland.

More Sam Bradford news. I really think Mike Shanahan covets him bigtime. Here's a piece from the DC Examiner.

And one from Redskins Insider.

Speaking of Bradford, he can do wrong thus far in his young professional career. His Pro Day was brilliant. And FYI, Bruce Allen was in attendance.

And since it was that good, the Redskins might have to get "creative" in order to draft him.

Adam Schefter tweeted today that Tim Tebow would be visiting the DC area next week. Here's the tweet:

"Florida QB Tim Tebow has been in New England the past two days. And he's headed to Washington and Cleveland next week."

And here's a look at the Redskins roster halfway through the offseason.
