Wilson offering Arrington 'Pampers' for his No. 24


Adrian Wilson, one of the newest additions to the New England Patriots' secondary, is ready to chase a Super Bowl with his new crew.

First things first, though: he wants his number back.

Wilson quipped about his new feud with teammate Kyle Arrington during a conference call with the media on Thursday, telling reporters that he has an interesting proposition for the fellow defensive back regarding the No. 24 jersey he currently dons. (photo: Victor Dorantes, Flickr)

“I told him I know he just had a new baby,” Wilson said. “I know he signed a new contract but I offered him a year’s supply of Pampers. Hopefully he gets back to me.”

According to Mike Reiss of ESPNBoston, it may cost more than a buttload of diapers (forgive the pun) to get Arrington to give up the number.

Arrington’s current number reportedly represents his transition through the league in the last five years; it’s a mirror of his former number (42) and a symbol that though it is half as large, his prosperity has since doubled.

The verdict is still out on whether Wilson will get his wish. Arrington did joke to Shalise Manza Young of the Boston Globe via Twitter not too long after his press conference, however, saying that Wilson “may have to throw some formula in there too.”
