Atlanta Falcons Offseason 2012: Chris Polian Becomes Regional Scout

Former Indianapolis Colts vice president and general manager Chris Polian is resurfacing in the NFL in a much more subtle and behind the scenes role, now working as a scout for the Atlanta Falcons. This is the word from the National Football Post:

Chris Polian is getting back in the NFL at a grass roots level. After becoming more of an administrator with the Colts in recent years, Polian will be hitting the road in his new role as western regional scout for the Falcons. He'll also be handling some special projects. Good thing for Polian and the Falcons-he still is being paid by Indy for the next two years.

Polian, along with his father Bill Polian who was the team president, was fired after the 2011 season when the Colts posted a 2-14 record in the absence of Peyton Manning due to injury.
