Derrick Henry gives insight into how he viewed Baltimore from an outside perspective

The Baltimore Ravens have had plenty of perceptions around them throughout their franchise history. Both inside and out, the team has a reputation for many things, and those can change depending on your experience and status with the franchise.

Running back Derrick Henry signed a two-year deal with Baltimore on the second day of 2024 NFL free agency. He came over from the Tennessee Titans and revealed his outside view of the Ravens, preaching physicality as a main trait.

“Buckle your chinstrap. Get ready for a 60-minute fight and know that you’re going to take some licks [and] you’re going to have to give some licks. Every time we played [the Ravens], it was physical. We had to have a great game plan to prepare for these guys, especially on defense because they give you so many different looks. Then, our defense getting ready for Lamar [Jackson and] how you’re going to game-plan against him. I’m definitely glad to go on the other side now.”

Baltimore has so many different elements to them, but what they’ve been known for since coming into the NFL in 1996 is their defense. While their offense has taken off with quarterback Lamar Jackson at the helm, it all comes back to their defense whenever someone thinks of the Ravens.
