He is owner and president of AG Squared Networks, Inc., a business and personal development company which assists businesses, individuals, teams and organizations reach their optimal growth and development.
Griggs played for the Philadelphia Eagles for four years and the Cleveland Browns for three years. He was named the Eagles' 1985 Man of the Year for his off-field community involvement.
