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.
