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.
