Ryan Grigson is Indy's new GM.

News out of Indy:

Owner Jim Irsay has turned to Ryan Grigson to help return the Indianapolis Colts to prominence.

The Highland, Ind. and Purdue University product has been hired as the team’s new general manager, the team announced this morning. …

Grigson, 39, has spent the past nine seasons with the Philadelphia Eagles, the last two as their director of player personnel. He emerged from a list of seven candidates interviewed by Irsay, and met with Irsay a second time Tuesday. …

Grigson’s football roots stretch back to Purdue where he was a tight end and offensive tackle from 1991-94. He served as team captain as a senior.

Let’s hope he isn’t planning on putting together a Dream Team.
