Ryan Grigson Makes Strong First Impresssion As Colts' New GM
Published January 12, 2012
NOT WORRIED ABOUT THE HEAVY LIFTING: CBSPORTS.com's Will Brinson writes there are a "number of issues Grigson will face when he steps into his new role, but the two hardest decisions may not even be on him." Irsay has said that he will be "handling the call as to whether or not Peyton Manning is retained and it's believed that the Colts are all but locked-in on Andrew Luck as the No. 1-overall pick in the 2012 NFL Draft" (CBSSPORTS.com, 1/12). NFL Network's Michael Lombardi noted Manning's future with the team “is on the owner’s level and only the owner’s level.” Lombardi: “This is going to be Jim Irsay’s call. Ryan Grigson is going to concentrate on the draft and improving the Colts’ roster moving forward” (“NFL Total Access,” NFL Network, 1/11).
