Eagles' Grigson to interview for GM openings

The Eagles have granted director of player personnel Ryan Grigson permission to interview for the Colts and Rams general manager openings, according to an NFL source.

Sean Jensen of the Chicago Sun-Times first reported that Grigson was in play for a couple of general manager openings.

After four seasons as director of college scouting, Grigson was promoted into his current position in early 2010, replacing now-general manager Howie Roseman. Grigson, 39, has been with the Eagles since 2003 when he first joined the staff as a scout.

A product of Purdue, Grigson was drafted by the Bengals in the sixth round of the 1995 draft. The offensive lineman spent that season with the Detroit Lions, however. He played another season in the Canadian Football League and then retired.
