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, CFL. and XFL teams and get a shot at being a career football player. So I hope you all read this interview of free agent running back Christian Caviness, and make sure you follow his journey on Twitter.

The brotherhood, the fact that I can inspire someone with my play, the life lessons within the game it all marvels me each time.
3. How do you prepare for games?
I study alot of film look for tendencies, seeing how linebackers and defensive line coordinated, from that point with the secondary I try to see what angles or weak points I can exploit.
