Quite a few local media types were shocked to learn that Eagles Director of Players Personnel Ryan Grigson was being interviewed by both the Indianapolis Colts and the St. Louis Rams for their open General Managers’ positions.
According to ESPN’s Adam Schefter, Grigson impressed the Colts in the first interview to the point that they want to talk to him again, which makes him the favorite to get the position. He will sit down against with Indy owner Jim Irsay and the team’s front office people once again.
Grigson hasn’t been very visible in his position with the Birds. He’s been in charge of the scouting department, which goes about its business without much interaction with the media. That will change for Grigson if he gets the GM job with the Colts.
