McAfee rips ex-Colts GM Grigson: Browns should send him to CanadatheScore
Pat McAfee has made it clear in the past he wasn't a fan of ex-Indianapolis Colts general manager Ryan Grigson, to put it mildly.
The former Colts punter explained Monday why he has a problem with Grigson - who recently joined the Cleveland Browns' front office - during an appearance on "PFT Live."
"“The first conversation we had together," McAfee said, according to Pro Football Talk's Mike Florio. "He told me I was the lowest thing in the organization, and he does not want to keep me. Mr. Irsay is forcing him to do it. That's our first conversation we had. Whenever he cut our entire team (in 2012) and only kept a couple people, the first conversation he told me I was the lowest thing in the organization and the only reason why I'm there because for some reason, Mr. Irsay won't cut (me). Literally. It's not a love-hate relationship. It's been a hate relationship since day one. Whenever he got fired, I was real excited. It was a great day in my life.
"The only way the Cleveland Browns could get worse, they brought him in. I'm trying to save the Cleveland Browns because the people of Cleveland deserve it. They're beautiful, they're amazing people. I think they should just send him to Canada. I think it would be great news for everybody, and for America, and that’s what I'm really here for. America."
As McAfee said, he wasn't able to contain his joy after the Colts fired Grigson this offseason and replaced him with Chris Ballard. McAfee didn't name Grigson specifically, but the punter's tweets at the time were clearly aimed at the GM.

McAfee surprisingly retired from the NFL in February.
