Here’s a message that will warm your heart.
At the end of April, 15-year-old super fan Jarrius “JJ” Robertson, who’s a proud follower of LSU and the New Orleans Saints, had a liver transplant. It took 14 years to find a donor to help him with his condition after he was born with a chronic liver disease called biliary atresia that affects his physical growth.
Recently, former Alabama running back and current Saints player Mark Ingram visited the young fan to offer support. Then on Monday, a video clip from former LSU safety Jamal Adams was posted as a message of encouragement for Robertson.

What an awesome move by Adams. The New York Jets took the former LSU player as the No. 6 overall pick in the 2017 NFL Draft.
It’s always great when players reach out in this way. The fact that Adams extended this goodwill to the young fan is sure to make Robertson’s day. That sweet gift is a great touch as well.
It’s unlikely that Robertson will switch his allegiances from the Saints to the Jets anytime soon. But what an amazing gesture by Adams here.
