Former Cleveland Brown and Oregon St. Beavers QB Derek Anderson has signed a two year contract with the Arizona Cardinals, according to KTAR in Arizona.

With the retirement of the Cardinals' staring quarterback Kurt Warner, Anderson is expected to initially backup Matt Lineart, but could compete for the starting job should Lineart struggle, as has happened in the past, including when Arizona opted to bring in Warner.

Anderson spent the last four seasons in Cleveland, once making the NFL Pro Bowl.

Anderson's deal is reportedly with $3.25 million guaranteed, and potentially $7.25 million.
