The Atlanta Falcons will add former Indianapolis Colts general manager Chris Polian to their front office this week, Mike Florio of ProFootballTalk.com reports.
D. Orlando Ledbetter of the Atlanta Journal-Constitution reports that Polian is expected to serve in a scouting capacity.
Polian joined the Colts in 1998, first as the team's
Director of Pro Personnel under his father, Bill Polian, before he was promoted to Vice President of Football Operations/General Manager in 2009. Polian was slated to take the helm of the day-to-day operations of the Colts when Bill retired, but a 2-14 season without Peyton Manning prompted Jim Irsay to clean house on the day after the 2011 season.
Bill Polian landed with ESPN, while Dennis Polian, the Colts' former Director of Football Administration, was expected to land with the Tennessee Titans, but does not yet appear on that club's website.
