Thanks to his talents and success, two seasons later he won the 2000 Player of the Year Award, and subsequently stayed with the team until 2003, when he was traded to the Oakland Raiders, where he finished his professional playing career with a total of 819 tackles, 47 interceptions and four touchdowns.

In addition to this, Ray decided to stay in the sports industry after his retirement, so he began working as a host on Fox Sports Radio, alongside Bruce Jacobs, increasing his wealth again.

Apart from his career in the sports industry, Ray also tried himself as a rap musician, releasing a self-titled studio album in 2002, which also contributed to his net worth.

When it comes to speak about his personal life, Ray Buchanan is married to Beth, with whom he has two sons – Ray Jr. and Baylen – both of them are football players. Previously, he was married to Sheree, with whom he has two daughters. His current residence is in Atlanta, Georgia.
