INDIANAPOLIS (AP) Colts general manager Ryan Grigson finds himself in a delicate situation.
Indianapolis fans, coach Chuck Pagano and Colts players all want to hoist the Lombardi Trophy this season. Owner Jim Irsay wants even more: a Super Bowl crown now and a contender well into the future. Doing both won't be easy in the NFL's unfriendly salary-cap world, and Grigson knows it.
"A lot of Hail Mary's, I guess," Grigson joked when asked how he handles the predicament. "We have in our mind, every day, to still have a goal for sustained success. It's a tricky balance. We've never really rebuilt here, I don't think. We've built on the fly."
