When you have a two-time MVP quarterback like Lamar Jackson in his prime, you're always a threat to win the Super Bowl. The Baltimore Ravens realize this, and they tried to swing for the fences in this championship window by signing Derrick Henry away from the Tennessee Titans.

While the Ravens have always had strong running games with Jackson in the fold, they've never had a singular force running the ball quite like Henry. The expectation after last year is to finally break through in the crowded AFC, and Henry seems to believe he found the perfect place to chase his personal goal of a ring.

In an appearance on "The Pivot" podcast, Henry said that he is excited to go to a team where "they're hungry" for a championship. Henry is well aware of how desperately Jackson wants to finally slip a ring on his finger, and that desire is appealing for a player who never won the conference with the Titans.

Henry noted the fact the last time the Ravens won the Super Bowl, it was played in New Orleans. This year, the Super Bowl is in New Orleans once again. Henry wants to do everything he can to make sure history repeats itself and ends with Jackson getting a title.

The main criticism many had for Baltimore last season was their decision to abandon the ground game in the postseason. Once the Kansas City Chiefs took an early lead, Todd Monken started chucking it. That won't happen again with Henry in the mix.

While he is an older running back, Henry's ability to consistently grind out yards and still break. abig play when given the chance makes him one of the most valuable running backs in the league, especially for a team that has the threat of Jackson's legs to scare teams with.

Henry, who played most of his career in an under-center, I-formation attack that let him churn out yards, has also alleviated concerns from former teammate Taylor Lewan that suggested he might have a tough time adapting to a Ravens offense that operated primarily from the shotgun.
