Brandon Jacobs had a very good career as a Giant, but all good things must come to an end. Despite the Super Bowl wins, Joseph found himself getting frustrated with his play, lack of playing time, and backup role. So, during the off-season, Brandon Jacobs resigned with the San Francisco 49ers, breaking the heart of a six-year-old Giants fan named Joseph. Joseph’s mother explained that Brandon Jacobs had left the Giants over money, so Joseph took the $3.36 from his piggy bank and sent it to Brandon Jacobs so he could remain a Giant.
Joseph’s mother, Julie Armento, wrote the letter for her son and enclosed the contents of his piggy bank for him. Somehow, the letter ended up in the hands of Brandon Jacobs rather than his agent or some other handler, which caused Jacobs to tweet about the incident and how it affected him emotionally. Now, Jacobs can’t resign with the Giants until his 1-year, $1.5-million-dollar contract is over, but this certainly seemed to affect the running back.
“I almost cried, I am still trying to hold it in. I may have to pay him a surprise visit,” tweeted Jacobs.
