Bess has earned the right to continue wearing #15.

It's after 8 PM ET, which means members PFT Planet still checking out the site are the ones that would be interested in a jersey number story.
(Although writing that guarantees comments to the contrary.)
Brandon Marshall was just made a $50 million man, but the agent for Dolphins wideout Davone Bess says all the money in the world couldn't take away Bess' number 15.
"His No. 15 jersey is not for sale. Davone entered the league with it and will finish with it," agent Kenny Zuckerman said in an email to our buddy Alex Marvez at FOXSports.com .
We're not trying to make this a controversy. Zuckerman was careful to preface that remark by saying how excited Bess was about Marshall's addition to the team. The decision on the jersey was all Bess.
"I told Davone we can probably name our price, especially with the contract Brandon just signed," Zuckerman said. "If I had anything to do with it, bidding would have opened at $500,000."
Um . . . do agents get a cut of jersey swapping transactions?
