Roughly a month ago, San Francisco 49ers running back Brandon Jacobs received $3.36 in the mail from Joseph Armento, in order to keep him from leaving the Giants.  Of course Jacobs ended up leaving the New York in free agency, because the boy’s money unfortunately can’t pay his bills.

On Wednesday, Jacobs took his five-year old son Brayden to visit six-year-old Joseph and his four-year-old brother in Boonton, NJ , and took them out to the Jump On In bounce house to have some fun.

“He told me he really wanted to get out there with the kids,” Julie Armento (Joseph’s mother) said in a phone interview with The Sacramento Bee. “He really wanted to enjoy it, and he did. It was amazing.”

Jacobs told The Bee in a phone interview that they had a ball with the boys.

“It was just us in the whole place and we were just going room to room – just bouncing and flipping all over the place, hitting each other with balls, sweating, our shirts filthy. We were just dirty, stinky boys, you know?”

Jacobs gave Joseph a signed football, and a signed Giants helmet, that read: To Joe: Thanks for being a fan. God bless, Brandon Jacobs.
