49ers QB Alex Smith was declared a team captain. HC Mike Singletary said it was impossible to ignore Smith's commitment during the offseason.
"You know he's out here when no one was out here," Singletary said. "He was the guy that got the receivers together and threw to them, and changed his schedule around to meet with some other receivers. So, he was not just doing it once a day, he was doing it twice a day, as well as in the classroom. He was wearing (offensive coordinator) Jimmy Raye and (quarterbacks coach) Mike Johnson out all offseason."
