First stint with Raiders

Buchanon signed to the Oakland Raiders as an undrafted free agent. Despite a great showing in the 2006 Hall of Fame Game win against the Philadelphia Eagles, he did not make the team's final 53-man roster, but he was signed to the practice squad.

After the Raiders were hit with a string of injuries late in the year, resulting in several players being placed on the injured reserve, Buchanon was activated from the practice squad on December 20, 2006, and signed to the 53-man roster. For the last few games of the regular season, he was even on the 40-man roster active for the games. He saw very limited playing time, but still made one catch for nine yards in a losing contest against the Kansas City Chiefs in Week 16.

On August 16, 2007 the Raiders released him.

New York Giants

On August 21, 2007 the Giants picked him off waivers and released him six days later.

Kansas City Chiefs

On September 20, 2007 he was picked up by the Chiefs and put on their Practice squad.[1]

Carolina Panthers

On July 28, 2008, Buchanon was signed by the Carolina Panthers. He was released by the team during final cuts on August 30, but re-signed to the practice squad a day later. He was released from the practice squad on December 16.
