The New York Giants may not have been able to afford Brandon Jacobs. But one six-year-old boy was willing to spend his life savings of $3.36 to change that.
When Joe Armento found out that his favorite running back, who had been part of two Super Bowl Championship teams, had signed with the San Francisco 49ers, Joe sent Brandon the cash from his piggy bank along with a letter reading:
"Dear Brandon Jacobs, So you could go to the Giants, here is my money. Love, Joe."
Brandon tweeted out a picture of the note after he received the letter, and one typed up by Joe's mom Julie.
Brandon later tweeted: "I almost cried, I am still trying to hold it in. I may have to pay him a surprise visit."
This morning on "Starting Point," Joe and Julie talk with Soledad about their amazement that Brandon received their letters, and Brandon Jacobs calls in to the show to express his gratitude to Joe.
