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.
