Marvel Smith Retires

Posted Aug 29, 2009

The San Francisco 49ers today announced that tackle Marvel Smith has decided to retire after nine seasons in the National Football League.

“I would like to thank Marvel for his service to the 49ers organization over the last several months,” said head coach Mike Singletary. “Marvel and I have spoken, and I know that this was not a decision he took lightly. We appreciate that he came to us when he did with this decision, and wish him well in the next chapter of his life.”

A native of Oakland, CA, Smith joined the 49ers this offseason after spending nine seasons with the Pittsburgh Steelers. A Pro Bowl selection in 2004, he started 108 of 111 career regular season games in which he appeared.

The 31-year-old was Pittsburgh’s second round pick in the 2000 NFL Draft out of Arizona State.
