This is such a heartwarming move from Jacobs. It’s even more powerful when you take into account that they used to live out of a car, according to ESPN.

While I’m usually very against stuff like this from pro athletes and other people with money, I think this situation is a little different.

Josh Jacobs came from extremely limited means, and clearly struggled. Now, he’s off to a hot start in his NFL career and he’s making some money.

I absolutely understand him buying his dad a house after everything they’ve been through.

It’s important to take care of those who have taken care of you if you can. In this case, I think it’s safe to say Jacobs and his dad are very close, and he felt the need to help a little bit with a house.

Major props to Jacobs for the awesome gesture. Clearly, the Raiders star has a good heart.
