Pats' Wilson offers year's supply of diapers for Arrington's No. 24

It's been a week since the Patriots signed safety Adrian Wilson, an in-the-box enforcer who is reminiscent of a bigger, stronger Rodney Harrison. The 12-year vet arrives from Arizona, where he began his career, and now he'll join a secondary that includes recently re-signed cornerback Kyle Arrington.

It may seem arbitrary to bring up Arrington's name -- except that he currently wears No. 24, Wilson's number with the Cardinals. Usually, such matters are resolved with promises of financial remuneration (or, if you're Plaxico Burress and Jeff Feagles -- an outdoor kitchen), but Wilson has taken a different approach.

"I told (Arrington) I know he just had a baby and I know he signed a new contract, but I'm offering a year's supply of Pampers," Wilson said on a conference call Thursday, via ESPNBoston.com. "Hopefully he gets back to me."

As someone with two small kids, I can fully appreciate what it means to realize that you're out of diapers in the seconds following a blowout. But if Wilson were serious, he'd also throw in a year's supply of baby wipes and the promise to change said diapers because, really, that's half the fun.
