Ryan Grigson, who has served as a long time scout for the Philadelphia Eagles, has been hired as the general manager of the Indianapolis Colts. His old boss, current GM Howie Roseman, released a statement praising Grigson’s record with the team and wishing him well in his new job.
“Although we will miss Ryan personally and professionally we could not be happier for him," said Roseman. "He has been a great advisor to me and somebody I have leaned on to bounce ideas off of many times over my career. He leaves no stone left unturned in his efforts to find good players and we were lucky to have him here in Philadelphia. In addition to his skills as a talent evaluator, we can’t say enough about Ryan as a person. He is one of the best family men I have come across in the NFL and we wish he, Cynthia and his children all the best.”
