:chuckle: A refreshing, cool story in the crazy world of the NFL....


When running back Brandon Jacobs left the Giants for the 49ers on a one-year deal this offseason (http://www.cbssports.com/nfl/blog/eye-on-football/18109533/report-49ers-sign-running-back-brandon-jacobs), he didn't bolt New York because the G-Men couldn't afford him. But if I had a kid who was a fan of Jacobs as a player, that's what I would probably tell him or her.

And that's what one lady told her 6-year-old son Joseph. So Joseph, naturally, pooled all $3.36 of his life savings, put it in a plastic bag and mailed it to Jacobs with a letter hoping it would mean Jacobs could stay with the Giants.
