Brandon Jacobs signed with the 49ers in the offseason after spending his entire career with the Giants. One six-year-old Giants fan was so sad to see him go, he sent Jacobs $3.36 to convince him to re-sign with the team after being told that the defending Super Bowl champs couldn’t afford to keep him.

The fan letter was sent to Jacobs by the six-year-old’s mother, on behalf of her son. This was his message to Jacobs:

Dear Mr. Jacobs,

So you could go to the Giants, here is my money.

Love, Joe.

Naturally, Jacobs was touched by the letter. He sent the following tweets:

I almost cried, I am still trying to hold it in. I may have to pay him a surprise visit.

He sent me 3.36 cent

And once again we’ve seen that young fans are often the best. Well, unless they’re Eagles fans.

  • Gotta love kids.
  • Very touching.
  • Its truly all he is worth.
  • wow, you totally missed the entire meaning of this story - JERK!
  • My son sent Hines Ward a $20 bill four years ago, and asked for an autographed glove. All he got was nothing - now @mvp86hinesward has $20 more in his retirement account!
  • How sad
  • Brandon, I do hope you visit him. I think this is a very sincere kid. Obviously you and the team left a very good impression. Take care.
    I'm a Niner fan and I don't usually write to other teams, but this story is so cute.
    Ooops, I'm sorry I don't know how my psychology homework ended up on the screen, I was trying to put my pic.
