Brandon Jacobs was released by the New York Giants this offseason after winning his second Super Bowl with the franchise. He has since signed with the San Francisco 49ers.
A 6-year old boy named Joe, an avid Giants fan was confused by this. His mother explained to him that the Giants did not have enough money to keep him and this was upsetting to the young gentleman. He then emptied his piggy bank which had a total of $3.36 and mailed it along with a letter to Brandon Jacobs. It reads as follows:
Dear Brandon Jacobs,
So you could go to the Giants, here is my money.
Joe’s mother wrote a letter translating his handwriting and explaining his motivation behind it.
Brandon Jacobs was moved by the letter and later tweeted, “I almost cried. I am still trying to hold it in. I may have to pay him a surprise visit.”
A reminder that some people still view sports without the business and with loyalty. Here is an image of the letter and the young boy’s money:
