NFL Report / News and notes

Arizona Cardinals: Derek Anderson is joining the Cardinals knowing he begins as the backup quarterback to Matt Leinart with a chance to push for the starting job. Anderson, released by the Cleveland Browns, agreed to a two-year deal. He was with the Browns for five seasons.

Chicago Bears: Released former Pro Bowl defensive back Nathan Vasher. Selected in the fourth round of the 2004 draft out of Texas, Vasher played six seasons with Chicago and made 19 interceptions, but his play dropped off the last few seasons and he was slowed by injuries.

Miami Dolphins: Signed free-agent guard Richie Incognito to a one-year contract. Incognito started the final three games for the Buffalo Bills last season after being waived by the St. Louis Rams.

Philadelphia Eagles: Released former All-Pro right guard Shawn Andrews in a move that was expected. Andrews, who missed the 2008 training camp because of depression, has played in just two games over the past two years because of back injuries.

Tebow shows new form: Quarterback Tim Tebow completed his first public workout with his new throwing motion, hoping to impress NFL general managers, coaches and scouts that were in attendance. Tebow threw dozens of passes to former teammates Riley Cooper, Aaron Hernandez and David Nelson during a 30-minute workout in Gainesville, Fla.

Playoff OT vote near: NFL owners will vote next week whether to allow each team a possession in overtime in the playoffs if the team winning the OT coin toss kicks a field goal on the first series. Previously, the game would end whenever either side scores.
