Former Colts general manager Ryan Grigson was added to the Browns front office yesterday. Grigson was fired from the Colts in January of last season, and the Colts replaced him with Chris Ballard.

Browns fans know Grigson from the trade he made in 2013 for Trent Richardson in exchange for a first-round pick. The Browns would go on to use that pick to select Johnny Manziel, and the rest is vomit-inducing history.

Browns general manager Sashi Brown had this to say about Grigson, “Ryan brings valuable experience to our personnel group. He was raised as a road-scout and has been evaluating talent in this league for almost 20 years. We place a premium on that experience and on his passion for football.  Ryan has much to offer to any personnel department and we are pleased that he chose to join our staff.”

Grigson will work for the Browns as a senior personnel executive.
