Anderson gets $7.5 million over two years Posted by Gregg Rosenthal on March 17, 2010 2:41 PM ET If Arizona's aggressive pursuit of quarterbacks this offseason didn't get Matt Leinart's attention, Derek Anderson's contract will.
ESPN's Adam Schefter reports that Anderson will get $7.25 million over the next two years. $3.25 million is guaranteed and Anderson could make $18.25 million if he reached every incentive. (Wow.)
That's the kind of money you get to start second on the depth chart, with a legitimate chance to rise. It's $1 million more in base salary than David Carr saw, which makes sense considering Arizona's quarterback position is more available.
Leinart still looks like the favorite to start in Week One, but it wouldn't be a shock to see Anderson starting before Week Ten.
There have been plenty of whispers the Cardinals aren't fully on board with Leinart as the team's quarterback of the future, and the team has backed those rumors up this offseason.
That's a lot of money for Anderson, but I suppose Arizona had to bring somebody in with starting experience to pressure Leinart. I still think Leinart will be the starter, but he might have a shorter leash now.
