INDIANAPOLIS – Now that general manager Ryan Grigson has money to spend in free agency, he's devising a new game plan.
If he can find a big-named, high-priced free agent that could get Indianapolis to the Super Bowl, he's willing to pay top dollar. If he can find a lesser-known player for a bargain, he's willing to roll the dice, too.
Either way, Grigson finally has the flexibility to do whatever it takes to make the 2013 Colts better than they were last season.
It's a far cry from the financial mess Grigson inherited when team owner Jim Irsay hired him last January.
Indy wound up releasing Peyton Manning, cutting a handful of other fan favorites and letting several other key contributors leave in free agency just to scrape enough money together to start rebuilding.
