LaCanfora: Colts seek permission

The Colts have apparently begun the GM search in earnest:

Colts owner Jim Irsay has contacted several teams for permission to interview candidates who are under contract elsewhere, and he also is interviewing some currently on staff. The quick movement follows the firing of team president Bill Polian and general manager Chris Polian on Monday.

Colts director of player personnel Tom Telesco is under consideration, according to sources familiar with the hiring process, and Baltimore Ravens personnel executive Eric DeCosta also is high on the list. According to sources, the Colts have asked for permission to interview DeCosta, who also has garnered interest from the Chicago Bears after general manager Jerry Angelo was fired.
