So, when the Giants released Jacobs rather than pay him $5 million and lost him to the San Francisco 49ers, this 6-year-old wanted to do something about it — a feeling every single fan of every single age has at some point known.
This fan, with the help of his mother, wrote to Jacobs, who shared a photo of the letter from Julie Armento and her son, Joe, on his Twitter feed:
“Dear Brandon Jacobs,
So you could go to the Giants, here is my money.
Enclosed, Jacobs found $3.36 from Joe’s piggy bank.
Jacobs’s reaction? “I almost cried, I am still trying to hold it in,” he tweeted. “I may have to pay him a surprise visit.”
And as he thought about it, Jacobs tweeted an idea: “Here's what I am thinking for the kid, I have a 5 year old, I will go and pick Joe up at his home in jersey and take him and my son 2 chucky cheese, what y'all think about that.”
All together now: Awwwwww.
