Brandon Jacobs, A Beast Of A Running Back And Big Kid At Heart

6-year-old Joseph Armento is a big fan of Brandon Jacobs. When he heard that the New York Giants released his favorite player because they couldn’t afford to pay him, he offered to help out. How? By offering up his piggy bank. How much was in his piggy bank, $3.36. Jacobs signed with the 49ers. Armento emptied his piggy bank and sent the money to California. Jacobs was moved by the 6-year-old’s gesture. Jacobs was still in the midst of relocating his family from Jersey to San Francisco, so he planned an outing to the Jump On In bounce house in Boonton, N.J. It was a private event. Jacobs took his son along with Armento and his brother to the Jump On In bounce house, and they had the whole place to themselves. Jacobs was the big kid among them as they played non-stop for 2 hours. At the end of the day, Jacobs gave Armento a signed New York Giants helmet and 5 dollars. Jacobs said it was only right to give him his money back since he is now with the 49ers. Young Jason Armento had the time of his life and got his money back with interest.
