Rachal, 27, started eight games for the Chicago Bears last season but was placed on the non-football injury list after he was demoted and became distraught by the club’s decision and left the team.
A former second-round pick of the San Francisco 49ers in 2008, Rachal has a wealth of starting experience. He provides the Cardinals with some competition and if he can prove he’s worthy, a backup spot on the 53-man roster might not be out of the question.
Rachal has good size at 6-5, 323 pounds, but he can be prone to mental mistakes. If he’s realistic about the opportunity ahead of him, he could continue his career. He’s known for being a hard worker and the Cardinals have a fresh slate for him.
