Add Chilo Rachal to the list of ex players the 49ers might run into in 2012. The former second-round pick agreed to a one-year deal with the Bears, according to NFL.com's Ian Rappaport. Rachal, an unrestricted free agent, also visited the Rams.
Rachal is part of the 49ers' woebegone 2008 draft class. The only member of that class who is still on the team is seventh rounder Larry Grant, who signed a restricted free-agent tender earlier this week. Another member, third rounder Reggie Smith, signed with the Panthers last month. Rachal started the 2011 season at right guard but was replaced by Adam Snyder, who is now with the Cardinals.
The 49ers host the Bears on Monday Night Football on Nov. 19. Special teamer Blake Costanzo also is with Chicago this year.
