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.

Love, Joe.

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.

  • 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.
