Phillip Buchanon was born to Annie Dalis and James Buchanon. He started playing football in the positions of a running back and defensive back while he attended Lehigh Senior High School in Lehigh Acres, Florida. Thanks to his skills, he excelled and received an All-State selection. His high school career finished with seven interceptions and 102 tackles. Besides football, he was also a member of the track and field team for three seasons, an set personal records of 10.5 seconds in the 100m, and 21.8 seconds in the 200m sprints. Phillip recorded 6.79 seconds for the 60m at the Meyo Invitational, in which he participated, after joining the Hurricanes track team in 2001. After matriculation, he became a student at the University of Miami, where he continued to play football for the college team in the position of a returner, and he earned All-American honors, finishing his college career with two touchdowns, and 32 returns for 477 yards.

Phillip’s professional career began in 2002, when he participated in the NFL 2002 Draft, and was selected by the Oakland Raiders in the first round, as the 17th overall pick, however, he never lived up to the expectations of the league. He signed a rookie contract for four years with the Raiders, which certainly increased his net worth, but stayed only three seasons in the Oakland, as he was traded to the Houston Texans in 2005. During his time with the Raiders, Phillip recorded 122 tackles and 11 interceptions. His numbers dropped with the Houston, playing only 14 games in total for the two years he spent there, and recording only 37 tackles. The Houston Texans waived him in October 2006.

After that, he signed a three-year deal with the Tampa Bay Buccaneers, increasing further his overall net worth. His game numbers became better, playing in 36 games, and making a total of 137 tackles. In 2009, he switched to the Detroit Lions, spending a season there, before he was released. Before he decided to retire, he spent two seasons with the Washington Redskins, but didn’t have much playing time, due to his violation of the NFL’s performance enhancing drug policy.

Most recently, Phillip has published his autobiographical book entitled “New Money: Staying Rich” in 2015, which has also contributed to his net worth.

When it comes to his personal life, there is no information in the media about Phillip Buchanon, as he keeps it private. Spare time he spends posting on social networks, including his official Twitter account. His current residence is in Miami, Florida.
