According to Michael Gehlken of the Las Vegas Journal Review, the Raiders have not hired former Colts GM Ryan Grigson for a front office, despite the prior reports that he could be a possible addition.
Gehlken says that the Raiders hiring Grigson is not considered imminent at this time, but he was among the personnel men who interviewed for Oakland a few weeks ago.
One report said that the 49ers had some interest in Grigson, but that was later refuted.
Grigson, 46, 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.
