NFL fans saw a glimpse of running back Derrick Henry in a Baltimore Ravens uniform for the first time on Monday since he signed a two-year contract with the team back in March.

The Ravens' social media account posted a video of Henry decked out in the full purple and black uniform heading into OTAs on Monday. The four-time Pro Bowler walked onto the field alongside linebacker Roquan Smith.

Nothing explicitly was said in the video, but the image of Henry in a Ravens uniform sparked enough discourse on its own.

It's the first time in Henry's NFL career in which he's wearing a team's jersey other than the Tennessee Titans, where he spent the first eight seasons of his career. So, understandably, it was a bit shocking for NFL fans to see this change. Take a look at some of the social media responses, which were mostly positive, to the video. Fans are mostly still in shock that Henry is a Raven.
