Jeremiah Johnson

Hello, I am @jrberendzen on Twitter and this is one of my free agent interviews where I ask very deserving free agents questions about the players themselves and about what a team would get in these players. All of these players should get picked up by NFL and CFL teams and get a shot at being a career football player. Follow Jeremiah Johnson’s journey on Twitter as well, @4xLLTJ
