Colts owner Jim Irsay met with a large number of the best young personnel men in the NFL, and it looks like he’s chosen his favorite.
ESPN’s Adam Schefter reports that the Colts plan to hire Eagles director of player personnel Ryan Grigson, 40, to be their next general manager. Grigson visited the Colts for a second interview Tuesday.
He reportedly has an agreement in principle in place, with lawyers finalizing the contract. Schefter says Grigson could be introduced as early as Wednesday.
Grigson spent nine seasons in Philadelphia including two as the director of player personnel. A product of Purdue University, Grigson was a sixth-round pick of the Bengals in 1995. His career was cut short by a neck injury suffered in the CFL in 1997.
