Chilo Rachal, a guard who started eight games for the Bears last year, has signed with the Cardinals.

Rachal was a starter for the Bears in November when the surprising news came out that he had been demoted off the first-string offensive line and was leaving the team for what were termed “personal reasons.” He was eventually placed on the Bears’ non-football injury list.

Whatever the issues were with Rachal in Chicago, he has the ability to at the very least provide depth on the Cardinals’ offensive line, and possibly win a training camp competition and end up in a starting job.

Prior to signing with the Bears in 2012, Rachal played four years for the 49ers, who took him in the second round of the 2008 NFL draft.
