According to Ian Rapoport, former Colts GM Ryan Grigson is working in a consulting role for the Browns and new GM Andrew Berry.
Berry is close with Grigson from his time with the Colts front office and values his opinion. There’s a good chance the Browns’ future will have Grigson’s fingerprints on it.
Grigson’s name came up last year in a front office role with the Raiders, but nothing ever came of it.
Grigson, 47, had a brief NFL career with the Bengals and Lions before moving on and getting into coaching in 1998. The Eagles hired him as their director of player personnel in 2010 and he departed to become the Colts’ GM two years later.
After five seasons in charge of the Colts, Grigson was fired following the 2016 season. He spent a year working as a senior personnel executive for the Browns before joining the Seahawks as a consultant for the 2018 season.
During his five years in charge of the Colts, Grigson’s teams posted a record of 49 and 31 (61.25 percent) and made the playoffs three times.
