The 49ers signed Adam Snyder for two years, re-uniting the guard with the team after a one-year absence.
Snyder, 31, appeared in 121 games during his eight-year NFL career that began with the Niners in 2005. He spent the 2012 season with the Arizona Cardinals.
He signed a five-year, $17.5 million deal with the Cardinals last year, but lasted just one season. He was shoved out by Arizona’s new coaching staff after the organization used its first-round pick on North Carolina’s Jonathan Cooper.
Niners will be pulling for Alex Smith: As part of the deal to acquire quarterback Alex Smith, the Kansas City Chiefs still owe the 49ers a draft choice in 2014.
If Kansas City is 8-8 or better in 2013, that pick becomes a second-rounder. If they win seven or fewer games, the Chiefs are on the hook for only a third-round pick.
The Chiefs traded their 2013 second-round pick, No. 34 overall, to the 49ers in March. Defensive end Tank Carradine was drafted with that selection.
With a third-round pick coming from the Tennessee Titans by virtue of a draft-day deal, the 49ers could have at least three third-rounders and possibly a fourth as compensation for losing free safety Dashon Goldson to the Tampa Bay Buccaneers.
Curry added as assistant: Ronald Curry has been named an offensive assistant coach for the 49ers. Curry, 33, a seven-year NFL veteran, played in 76 games (32 starts) and registered 193 receptions for 2,347 yards and 13 touchdowns for the Raiders. Curry played in Oakland when 49ers coach Jim Harbaugh was an offensive assitant on the Raiders’ staff.
