It sounds like Adrian Wilson is one of those people and he’s willing to put diapers on the line to get his beloved No. 24.
Kyle Arrington, who just inked a four-year deal with the Patriots, has worn the No. 24 New England jersey since 2011 after wearing No. 27 during the 2009 season with Tampa Bay. Arrington also happens to be a first-time dad, as he and his wife VaShonda just welcomed son, Kyle Chandler Arrington Jr., earlier this year.
Wilson, who has rocked No. 24 in Arizona since 2002, is going to use Baby Arrington as somewhat of a bargaining chip.
The 33-year-old Wilson is a father of three and knows how expensive diapers can get.
“I told him I know he just had a new baby,” Wilson told the media this week. “I know he signed a new contract but I offered him a year’s supply of Pampers. Hopefully he gets back to me.”
