Brandon Jacobs signed with the 49ers in the offseason after spending his entire career with the Giants. One 6-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 young boy’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.
Naturally, Jacobs was touched by the letter. He sent the following tweets:
And once again we’ve seen that young fans are often the best. Well, unless they’re Eagles fans.

Vernon Davis is pretty high on his team. A year after they lost in the NFC Championship Game, he says his squad should be SB favorites.
A six-year old New York Giants fan named Joe sent San Francisco 49ers running back Brandon Jacobs a letter with $3.36 in it so he’d be able to re-sign with the Giants.
Of course it unfortunately didn’t matter how much money the boy sent Jacobs, he couldn’t work anything out with the Giants and ended up signing with the 49ers.

Prior to the off-season, Brandon Jacobs had spent the first seven years of his NFL career with the New York Giants with mixed results from the fan base before bolting NY to join the San Francisco 49ers. Apparently a young 6-year old Giants fan wasn’t too fond of Jacobs potentially leaving and mailed the running [...]
San Francisco 49ers head coach Jim Harbaugh has gained a reputation for using players in non-traditional roles, and he may be doing it again with Will Tukuafu, a defensive tackle who has been spending time at fullback during practice. On Tuesday, Tukuafu caught a pass while coming out of the backfield, and the 6-4-, 293-pound Tukuafu has been getting quite a bit of practice time...
San Francisco's Will Tukuafu has spent most of his football life chasing down running backs. The 49ers hope he can now help Frank Gore and the rest of their backfield handle other defensive tackles with the same agenda.
The 293-pound Tukuafu is getting some additional work at fullback during the 49ers' organized team activities this offseason. He even managed to catch a...
Head Coach Jim Harbaugh singled out Vernon Davis today as someone having “an outstanding offseason.” This is just a continuation of what Davis did down the stretch last year. In his last 5 games, including playoffs, he had 28 catches for 536 yards and 5 touchdowns. Davis struggled with the playbook earlier in the season, which he himself admits. However, before last year when...

It comes as no surprise, that when interviewed recently, Vernon Davis of the San Francisco 49ers was very confident about the state of the team and where they rank among the league today. He’s a football player, one of the best tight ends in the league, one of the best in the world if one counts the NFL as the pinnacle platform for football players to achieve. Of course he’s...
