On the same day Jabari Greer signed with the New Orleans Saints, the Tampa Bay Buccaneers apparently have taken a double hit at cornerback.

The Bucs, who had Greer in for a visit and presumably had serious interest in signing, also lost incumbent starter Phillip Buchanon. He's signed a two-year $8.5 million deal with the Detroit Lions. The Bucs wanted to re-sign Buchanon.

Kind of interesting that Buchanon, who played under head coach Raheem Morris when he was the defensive backs coach, opted to sign with a team that was winless.
