With the season over, this is a do-or-die offseason for Indianapolis Colts general manager Ryan Grigson.
After a brilliant offseason before the 2012 campaign, drafting key players like T.Y. Hilton and Vick Ballard in later rounds, Grigson struggled in 2013. None of his draft picks exactly panned out, and his additions via free agency either struggled, were seriously overpaid or both.
The good news for Grigson is that he has another offseason to prove that 2013 was a fluke. According to OverTheCap.com, he'll be working with nearly $35 million in cap room.
The bad news? If the additions this offseason don't work out, fans may start calling for a new general manager.
With a ton of players leaving for free agency, both on the Colts and league-wide, here are a few cost-effective moves that Grigson should make over the next few months.
