New Ravens star RB Henry excited for 2024

Ravens fans are still adjusting to the idea that they now have a stud RB again since they signed Derrick Henry in free agency.

Well Derrick Henry is adjusting to his new surroundings with the Ravens and playing for a contender.

“When you’ve been somewhere eight years, there are changes with the people in the organisation, just getting to know everybody and getting everybody to know me. Learning the culture and how to do things around here I don’t think will be hard. I think I will get acclimated pretty quickly by the guys around here,” Henry said.

“Here, it’s very family oriented, a great brotherhood, but no. I’m not worried so much about that. I’m just excited for what’s in store and getting to know everybody and getting into the swing of things. I’m trying to help in any way possible around here.”

Remember, the Ravens only shelled out $16-million over 2-years for the stud running back who has over 10,000 career rushing yards and 94 touchdowns.

Ravens look improved for 2024

Head Coach John Harbaugh is pretty excited as well. “Well, that’s just it. People talk about attacking the full width of the field, especially in the run game,” Harbaugh said. “You could do it in the pass game too or extend some runs or call them screens and things like that.”

“These are all things Lamar is so good at. Lamar does it by throwing the ball. He could do it by reading the defense and keeping it or going a different way. We could take the back, and Lamar could go vertical. We’ve got a lot of different things that we like to do.”

“So, A gap, B gap, C gap, D gap, alley, or all the way to the sideline, you want to attack a defense like that, right? That’s important in the run game, and Derrick Henry can attack every single one of those areas just as well. He could come downhill, there’s no doubt about it. He’s going to get after that A gap and he’s going to make people defend to force the defense to tuck in their real nice.”
