Adrian Wilson makes unique offer for his number

With veteran players changing teams, some will find that the number they have been wearing for years isn’t available.

That’s the case in New England, where newcomer Adrian Wilson’s familiar No. 24 belongs to Kyle Arrington.

Often in these situations, money changes hands.  Here, a different commodity could be in play.

According to Field Yates of ESPNBoston.com, Wilson has offered a year’s worth of diapers to Arrington, who recently became a father for the first time.  Wilson appeared to joke about it on Thursday, but he repeated the offer via Twitter on Friday.

Eight years ago, former Redskins running back Clinton Portis purchased his No. 26 from safety Ifeanyi Ohalete for $40,000.  After Ohalete was cut, Portis cut off the payments, stiffing Ohalete for $20,000.  A lawsuit was filed.

If that happens here, there eventually could be odor in the court.

    Super lame joke. Keep up the good work.

    are you s(#$%)ing me? Cant help it. Too easy

    ha. are you serious? odor in the court??? that is badddd. smh

    “If that happens here, there eventually could be odor in the court.”

    I just imagine you saying this in a crowded room to about 3 seconds of silence, then someone clearing their throat, while youre still trying to sell it.

    Portia and whoever that was are lame. They both should be ashamed of themselves. Wilson and Arrington are made of more than that. The fact that Wilson is offering a years worth of diapers for a new dad shows he’s a top notch individual and knows what actually matters

  7. raiderapologist says: Mar 22, 2013 11:45 PM

    Oder in the court? Oh well. At least the content is free.

  8. logica1voicesays says: Mar 22, 2013 11:55 PM

    That odor is actually the deadskins.

  9. theotuna says: Mar 23, 2013 12:08 AM

    Uhm – Mr Wilson? if you are, as they tell us, going to provide a seasoned leadership persona to this locker room, you’d better lay off the jersey crap. Ocho did that too – and how many snaps did he get? just saying

  10. mwilkins0 says: Mar 23, 2013 12:14 AM

    Good for him…. Class act by Wilson and its gonna be less than 1500 dollars buying diapers!!!!

  11. pkrlvr says: Mar 23, 2013 12:15 AM

    That was a long way to go for an “odor in the court” joke!!

  12. explosionsauce says: Mar 23, 2013 12:25 AM

    Nice pun

  13. CKL says: Mar 23, 2013 12:34 AM

    I think Mr and Mrs A may appreciate a babysitter once per month for a year so they can have a night to themselves even more than they would appreciate diapers.

  14. rextraordinaire says: Mar 23, 2013 12:38 AM

    Worst pun ever.

  15. jdphx says: Mar 23, 2013 12:47 AM

    P.U. Florio!

  16. chucknorrissinspiration says: Mar 23, 2013 12:47 AM

    Ohalete counter offered Clinton with challenging him to a boxing match…winner take number, when Clinton conveniently pussed out $ came in to play if my memory is as good as I think it is.

  17. romospersonalsnuggie says: Mar 23, 2013 12:50 AM

    Odor In the court hahaha good one mike florio 😜

  18. sunsbro says: Mar 23, 2013 12:51 AM

    that reminds me of a couple years ago when Mcnabb joined the Vikings. he told kluwe he would give money to his charity and mention his band in three press conferences for the #5. he ended up getting benched and never following through. he even signed a contract!

  19. bobman2 says: Mar 23, 2013 1:22 AM

    Sweet pun at the end. Looks like that law school thing finally paid off.

  20. andyo102 says: Mar 23, 2013 1:33 AM

    hmm and people wonder how these athletes go bankrupt and lose all their money

  21. purpwalk says: Mar 23, 2013 1:44 AM

    yeah, well, somebody has to say it, that stunk

  22. nonjaghater says: Mar 23, 2013 1:46 AM

    Smells like an inside job

  23. chawk12thman says: Mar 23, 2013 1:59 AM

    I would have had my agent include my number in my contract offer with the team. The team would have to assign the number to me and negotiate with the player who had previously had it.

  24. SkeletalDrawing says: Mar 23, 2013 2:24 AM

    Boooo…hisssss. The puns are coming out!

  25. joroberts10 says: Mar 23, 2013 2:24 AM

    Fantastic pun Mike

  26. thestrategyexpert says: Mar 23, 2013 2:46 AM

    I think this is kind of a crappy deal.

  27. jtt183 says: Mar 23, 2013 2:55 AM

    hehe mike u so funny!!

  28. sickoe47 says: Mar 23, 2013 3:12 AM

    Hey some times a # is like a brand for some guys.

  29. jonevans83 says: Mar 23, 2013 3:26 AM

    I see whut u did thar

  30. bettis3636 says: Mar 23, 2013 4:07 AM

    I had no idea about the Portis thing.. That’s nuts! Lol

  31. amargosamountain says: Mar 23, 2013 5:51 AM

    Portis did that? How disappointing. I really wanted him and Chad Johnson to be better people than most others, in retrospect they’re not all that special at all, besides having outgoing senses of humor, which is still worth something I guess

  32. vltrophy14 says: Mar 23, 2013 6:03 AM

    With what these guys make a yr supply of diapers is nothing. You figure about $3000. When Eli signed w/ the NYGs he gave the K enough money to go on vacation to a really nice place. I’ve heard of us paying upwards of $20K for a number

  33. bigoldred says: Mar 23, 2013 7:06 AM

    Adrien, you’ve made a lot of money over the years. Offer to throw $10k into the kid’s college fund. You look cheap.

  34. rg3andout says: Mar 23, 2013 7:28 AM

    40G’s for a number? boy these athletes are getting paid too much, i would always play with my favorite number….69

  35. sportsmeccabi says: Mar 23, 2013 7:40 AM

    Straight cash homie.

  36. keepounding1234 says: Mar 23, 2013 8:35 AM

    Trust me, I’m a dad. counter with that plus a year supply of formula and take the deal.

  37. ironcity6pak says: Mar 23, 2013 8:42 AM

    Duh

  38. nolahxc says: Mar 23, 2013 9:03 AM

    “odor in the court.”

    This might have been your pun of the year. Lol

  39. rhamrhoddy says: Mar 23, 2013 9:14 AM

    Tell him to throw in a team of hot nannies and he’s got a deal.

  40. nananatman says: Mar 23, 2013 9:16 AM

    That’s too much for a Redskins jersey, even if it came with legs and arms.

  41. emotionalfatguy says: Mar 23, 2013 9:37 AM

    Bad pun. Could have said “daipers could come in handy if Brady craps his pants in the playoffs again”. Stupid Brady becoming Peyton manning.

    yuk-yuk-yuk

  43. autumnwind999 says: Mar 23, 2013 11:07 AM

    A Year’s worth of diapers sounds a helluva lot more generous than $500 bucks, which is about the cash value. Wilson should go into marketing after his NFL career.

  44. mempusa says: Mar 23, 2013 11:09 AM

    Arrington said he has to throw in formula too.

  45. awareness18 says: Mar 23, 2013 11:26 AM

    Actually, that was funny

  46. jt2892 says: Mar 23, 2013 11:32 AM

    I’d make Wilson change a years worth of diapers!

  47. ahawkalypse says: Mar 23, 2013 11:47 AM

    He’s lucky he’s not dealing with the Jets CB Cromartie he would go bankrupt buying those diapers.

  48. bmue42 says: Mar 23, 2013 11:54 AM

    That joke stinks

  49. mjkelly77 says: Mar 23, 2013 12:10 PM

    If that happens here, there eventually could be odor in the court.

    Sounds like a Three Stooges episode.

  50. kgsmith says: Mar 23, 2013 12:26 PM

    that just stinks!

  51. dafedub says: Mar 23, 2013 1:34 PM

    Great joke. People are too serious.

  52. theuglitruth says: Mar 23, 2013 1:49 PM

    Pats overpaided for Kyle Arrington…what a joke!

  53. neva4get5 says: Mar 23, 2013 2:00 PM

    “Odor in the court”…thats stupid! How about Adrian Wilson telling Kyle Arrington that if you give me MY # I will save your sorry behind every time you get burnt like you have been! How about Adrian sayin’ “Hey Son, I’m a perrenial Pro-Bowler and you are a just a kid with a 7 int season under ya belt, Scram”…..
