It’s been 10 days because the information broke that the Ravens and Derrick Henry had reached an settlement on a two-year deal, and the NFL world continues to be buzzing in regards to the blockbuster transfer.

There have been loads of enormous signings and trades by the primary two weeks of free company, however maybe none are larger than the Ravens touchdown King Henry.

“Derrick Henry’s relocation to Baltimore is sheer perfection on so many ranges,” Schein wrote. “Talk in regards to the wealthy getting richer. … The Ravens led the league in speeding final season, in any case. And now they only added ‘King Henry’ to flank reigning MVP Lamar Jackson? That’s a marquee transfer that we, the overall football-watching public, wished to see! And so did the working again himself.

“Henry popped on my SiriusXM Radio present, ‘Scheinon Sports,’ after the deal got here collectively final week. He said that Baltimore was a spot he wished to be and ‘an ideal match.’ Indeed it’s. Henry’s dominant, bodily type is made for the ‘Play like a Raven’ mantra. Baltimore wanted to vary the dialog after the disheartening house loss to Kansas City within the AFC Championship Game. Yes, the protection has been terrific for years and Lamar stays probably the most particular abilities in soccer at the moment. But [General Manager] Eric DeCosta, [Head Coach] John Harbaugh and Co. could not simply run it again within the coming season. They wanted one thing new and thrilling. Henry is strictly that. The working again is motivated to make a run at a hoop, and this Ravens squad clearly has the make-up of a real Super Bowl contender.”

“He’s been the runner-up within the speeding race in every of the previous two seasons, and if you have not observed by now, the 6-foot-3, 247-pounder is simply constructed totally different,” Schein wrote. “Not to say, Jackson will probably be much more snug in Year 2 with Todd Monken as his offensive coordinator — which is a daunting thought for the remainder of the league — that means the Ravens will not have to overwork their new RB1. Carry the ball 15 occasions a sport, transfer the chains, rating touchdowns and shut out wins within the fourth quarter. This can be a match made in heaven.”
