Well, one young Giants fan took that to heart, and decided to try and do something about it. When his parents informed him that the Giants couldnât afford to keep the bruising back, 6-year-old Joe ArmentoÂ reached into his own piggy bank in an attempt to convince Jacobs to stay in New York. Check out this amazing letter that Jacobs received from JoeÂ (with the help of his mother Julie), and posted to his Twitter accountÂ on Tuesday (full text after the jump):

This is why I love sports. The purity of the child fan that has no clue yet about the diva, me-first, narcissistic athletes that rule much of todayâs game. What a feel good story about a 6-year-old New York Giants fan who was devastated after one of his favorite players Brandon Jacobs signed a deal with the San Francisco 49ers during the offseason.

San Francisco 49ers head coach Jim Harbaugh is a hard-nosed coach and thereâs no doubt that he expects his players to be the same way. Â So far in the month of June, there are four players that he has slated as guys that can play both offense and defense this season.
Will Tukuafu who weighs 293 pounds and was listed as a defensive tackle when he entered the NFL, has...
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...

Niners coach Jim Harbaugh has gained a reputation for using players in non-traditional roles, and heâs doing it again with Will Tukuafu, a defensive tackle who has been spending time at fullback during San Francisco's organized team activity practice sessions.
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. Heâs 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 heâ...
