Former Colts GM Ryan Grigson is back in the NFL. The Seahawks have hired him to join their front office, according to an announcement from his agent.

Grigson, 46, was the Colts’ GM for five years until he was fired after the 2016 season. Outside of landing Andrew LuckT.Y. Hilton, Coby Fleener, and Dwayne Allen his first draft, the rest of Grigson’s draft record was rather spotty. Meanwhile, his trade of a first-round pick for Browns draft bust Trent Richardson in 2013 probably stands as his most infamous move.

Grigson hooked on with the Browns in 2017, but he was let go by John Dorsey‘s regime. It’s not immediately clear what he’ll be doing in Seattle under GM John Schneider, but it’s likely to be scouting-focused. Officially, Grigson will serve as a consultant, Bob Condotta of The Seattle Times (Twitter link) hears.

    I hope the Seahawks don’t get above .500 the whole time this crazy nut job is apart of the front office.

        He’s not a gm tho. he may not be a good gm, but that doesn’t mean he’s bad in a front office role… that’s how he got a job as a gm anyway

          He destroyed the Colts roster in a span of 2 seasons and unfortunately got a good football coach fired.

    You know, I really wish I took business in college. It doesn’t seem like you need to know anything to keep making money in these front offices. Guaranteed he has a good friend on the Seahawks staff that got him the job.
