Ryan Grigson Emerges as a Top Candidate for Colts’ GM Post


According to ESPN’s Paul Kuharsky, Philadelphia Eagles director of player personnel Ryan Grigson has completed a second interview with Colts owner Jim Irsay for the open GM position.  Kuharsky provides a fairly complete biographical sketch of Grigson, but here are some of the salient points:

  • He’s an Indiana boy (he’s 40) with Purdue ties.
  • He spent some time on NFL rosters in the mid-1990s and played a bit in the CFL.
  • He has a strong scouting background.
  • His NFL teams have made the playoffs in seven of his 12 seasons.

Will Grigson be the next boss in Indy?   Nah, that’s Jim Irsay.
