Baltimore Ravens head coach John Harbaugh who has taken his team to the AFC Playoffs for all of his first three years is ready to cash in.

Ravens President Dick Cass has told the media that he expects to get a deal done soon.

There is a news conference scheduled for Thursday for the normal  “State of the Ravens.”

It is expected that the deal could be announced then.

The real question is the amount of the new deal.

Brother Jim Harbaugh just signed a reported 5 year $25 million dollar deal with the San Francisco 49ers.

That is not bad for a guy who did not take Stanford to a National Championship or even a PAC 10 championship.

So the question is – “Will the Ravens pay John the kind of money that brother Jim will be getting?”

Will John Harbaugh be a Top Ten paid coach?

We will see soon.
