The Minnesota Vikings have hired Ryan Grigson in a senior personnel position. Grigson spent the past two seasons with the Cleveland Browns as the team’s senior football advisor, where he worked with Vikings General Manager Kwesi Adofo-Mensah and contributed to all roster and strategic football decisions.
“I am thrilled to add Ryan Grigson to our staff,” Adofo-Mensah said. “During my time in Cleveland, I was immediately drawn to Ryan’s passion for the game, big heart, and reflective wisdom. He is a talented evaluator who brings energy and humor to every discussion. As a former general manager in the NFL, Ryan offers complementary skills to help me in my transition in becoming general manager and brings energy and humor to the room.”
Grigson adds 23 years of front office experience to the Vikings personnel staff, most notably spending time as the Indianapolis Colts general manager from 2012-16. He also served as a senior football consultant with the Seahawks from 2018-19
