Brandon Marshall Trade: Wide Receiver Will Wear No. 15 With Bears

Earlier on Tuesday, the Chicago Bears made a much-needed improvement to the team's receiving corps by acquiring WR Brandon Marshall from the Miami Dolphins in exchange for two third-round draft picks. The move also reunites Marshall with quarterback Jay Cutler, as the two used to be teammates in Denver.

Marshall wore the No. 15 in Denver, then switched to No. 19 in Miami. The Bears have announced that he will return to No. 15 in Chicago.
