Brandon Marshall still has no number

NFL_marshall3.jpgIn response to news that the newest guy to be issued No. 15 in Denver already is leading all rookies in jersey sales, a reader points out that the guy who used to wear No. 15 in Denver currently has no number in Miami.

According to the Dolphins’ online roster, Marshall’s number is still listed as “0”.  Since NFL players currently can’t wear “0”, it won’t be his number.

So what will Marshall’s number be?  Davone Bess currently owns No. 15, and he has said he won’t sell it to Marshall.  Available numbers from 10 to 19 and 80 to 89 include only 19, 87, and 88.  (No. 12 and No. 13 have been retired in honor of Bob Griese and Dan Marino.)

Though the situation doesn’t need to be resolved immediately, the team and Marshall are missing opportunities to make money via sales of his new jersey.

And the last time we checked, the team has exclusive authority over the numbers.  If the Tuna wants Bess to cough up No. 15, Bess will be coughing up No. 15 — with or without Marshall writing him a check.

    McDaniels and Pat think he’s No 1 (read between the lines).

  2. ethan robert says: May 5, 2010 6:27 PM

    No, the person misread the information. That was Marshall’s Wonderlic score.

  3. Profanity in ALL CAPS says: May 5, 2010 6:27 PM

    this will lead to marshall getting angry, and being traded to the flordia gators, where #15 is conveniently open

  4. akfinfan says: May 5, 2010 6:29 PM

    Marshall mentioned #87 at his press conference. It was also rumored that he cut a deal with Kory Sheets for #85, but not confirmed.

    Look, it is NON-STORY DAY on PFT!
    Wait… That is EVERY day on PFT…

    Well that definitly skews the jersey sales……
    Get a damn number so the “soon to be let down” Dolphin fans can wear your Jersey.

    I Read Somewhere That TE Kory Sperry Is Gunna Give Brandon Marshall #85!

  8. rayray1284 says: May 5, 2010 6:34 PM

    they are selling # 85 on ebay even tho its kory sprerry’s #

  9. habibfromnewdehli says: May 5, 2010 6:37 PM

    I’m gonna guess he goes with 87.

  10. pramis123 says: May 5, 2010 6:42 PM

    It has been written locally that he will wear Mark Duper’s old # 85.

  11. Scoop says: May 5, 2010 6:42 PM

    I’m suprised, with the new load of cash, that his new number isn’t already something like 1908370…or does the Florida Department of Corrections use a letter system?

  12. paynskii says: May 5, 2010 6:43 PM

    What’s in a number. Let him make his number choice one that can get retired. I like 10 a bunch. Different number for a Dolphin……

  13. drainthe;izard says: May 5, 2010 7:02 PM

    If they don’t give it to him, he’ll pick up his toys and go hom…………zzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzz.

    Umm… Pennington??

  15. KILLER FIN says: May 5, 2010 7:08 PM

    87 IS 15!!!

  16. csloan99 says: May 5, 2010 7:10 PM

    Marshall wore #6 at UCF. So I was thinking 6 or 16 if he can get the bench-warming QBs to give it up for straight cash, homey.

  17. SF Saints Fan says: May 5, 2010 7:23 PM

    Davone Bess will sell out, he just hasn’t heard the offer yet, “free coffee for life……and…..”.
    “I’ll take it.”

  18. KILLER FIN says: May 5, 2010 7:39 PM

    12, 13, & 39 are the only retired ones so go for 87!!! 8 + 7 = 15

  19. KILLER FIN says: May 5, 2010 7:41 PM

    heard that he’d wear 6 too, like in college but have to let White go first!!!

  20. TheShow says: May 5, 2010 7:41 PM

    oh florio,
    i think you need a gameboy at work so u can keep yourself occupied with pokemon

  21. BroncFanOr says: May 5, 2010 7:44 PM

    Dade county will give him one soon enough.

  22. RYIOT says: May 5, 2010 7:50 PM


  23. HellRelle24 says: May 5, 2010 7:51 PM

    who honestly cares? it will be blanketed by a green and white #24 you wont be able to see it anyway

  24. ethan robert says: May 5, 2010 8:05 PM

    Number of The Beast is 666.
    Verily, I sayeth.

  25. jaxdolfan says: May 5, 2010 8:16 PM

    He should wear #19 to help quickly erase the memory of Ginn.

  26. PhootballFilosophy says: May 5, 2010 8:26 PM

    Ryiot, are you 13 or something? The Dolphins will be hard pressed to even win a division in which the Jets and Patriots play over the next couple years. They have to get much better and both of the legitimate AFC east teams have to slide considerably downhill for Miami to have a chance.

  27. florios_mom says: May 5, 2010 8:33 PM

    RYIOT your an idiot. Bmarsh is only going to win the big game if Miami-Dade county jail has a football team. Even then the other inmates will probably say he has to many issues.

  28. downwithdansnyder says: May 5, 2010 8:42 PM

    So is Tebow leading the league or leading all rookies. Your two different posts imply two different things. OR is he leading both?

  29. Calir says: May 5, 2010 8:45 PM

    I think it’s great that Bess has said he isn’t giving him the number. Welcome aboard, check your ego at the door.

  30. dogma1 says: May 5, 2010 8:48 PM

    Who cares! Miami still won’t make the playoffs.

  31. gbditka says: May 5, 2010 8:50 PM

    What happens first, Brandon gets a Dolphin jersey number or prison number?

  32. Giants Fans Love Deeez says: May 5, 2010 8:56 PM

    Bess keeps the number all day bruh

  33. Bancho305 says: May 5, 2010 9:34 PM

    wow !!!!! All i read on here is dolphin HATERS!!! you stinkin jet fans wish you had marshall on your team..and dont give me that crap that you got edwards or holmes that wont be around for half the year and gets kicked off plans cause he’s so stupid..i can care less what number he gets..keep a towel with you cause you guys are sweatin just thinking about playin the MIA !!!!
    hahahaha !! i cant wait bitches !!!

  34. FinFan says: May 5, 2010 9:51 PM

    I thought I heard 85 or 87. He could be waiting to see who gets cut to choose from the list of jerseys. Maybe 10, or 6 might be included. Certainly not #15, unless he gets traded, but Bess will be part of the equation… he’s certainly an awesome wideout.

    Like hell, boy! We are easily one of the most physical teams in this league and we are incredibly deep in the trenches. We are also VERY young! My Phins are going to be contenders very, very soon! Book it!

  36. SleazyWhipcashPersonalInjuryAttorney says: May 5, 2010 10:14 PM

    He hasn’t even been on the team a month and he’s already thrown his first diva on massive amounts of roids hissy fit.
    “I ain’t playin’ till I get my muthaf-in numba”
    The attorneys are currently seeing what their options are, while Tuna tries to keep it hush-hush to save face for what is now quite apparently a huge mistake. Other GM’s say “I told you so”.

  37. jm0205 says: May 5, 2010 11:15 PM

    And I’m sure forcing Davone Bess who’s entering his 3rd year, maybe 2nd, wouldn’t cause a problem in the minds of the players..

  38. jm0205 says: May 5, 2010 11:18 PM

    @csloan99 and @Killer Fin WRs can’t wear single digits

  39. jm0205 says: May 5, 2010 11:53 PM

    I meant to say forcing Davone Bess, who’s been in Miami for a few years, to give up his number wouldn’t cause problems in the locker room or anything

  40. jaxdolfan says: May 6, 2010 6:25 AM

    Bess can catch. We must keep him.
    #19 is available for Marshall Marshall Marshall.

  41. tv says: May 6, 2010 6:51 AM

    Let him wear ZERO – it would be appropriate.

  42. Howboutdemcowboys says: May 6, 2010 7:11 AM

    “Brandon Marshall still has no number” . . .or a clue

  43. 60eagles says: May 6, 2010 8:36 AM

    Who gives a rats ass what this thug wears for his number!!!

  44. Reinman says: May 7, 2010 5:14 PM

    For all u idiots who say #6 for marshall….wr’s cannot wear single digit numbers…learn the rules before u say something

  45. lolcopter says: May 7, 2010 10:01 PM

    bess should definitely give up #15

  46. MainePhinFan says: May 8, 2010 11:03 PM

    Wow.. lotsa JeST trolls around here huh? Typical net losers whos lives are so horrible they feel tuff and special to come and rag on Miami fans. All I have to say is who beat who 2 years ago to make it in the playoffs? Then which team shut out the other this past season? Sorry to tell you JeST fans your not that good.
    As for Marshall’s number. 85 will do just fine.

  47. youguysrdumb says: Aug 8, 2010 4:15 PM

    even if pat white wasnt number 6 brandon marshall couldnt wear it because wide outs can only wear numbers from 10-19 and 80-89
