Grier stayed with the Giants from 1955 to 1962 and won the NFL Championship in 1956, and also the Eastern Conference Championship in 1958, 1959, 1961, and 1962. In 1956, 1958, and 1959, Rosey was named All-Pro, while in 1956 and 1960, he represented the Giants at the Pro Bowl. In 1963, he was traded to the Los Angeles Rams and stayed there until 1966, when he retired after tearing an Achilles tendon.

In 1965, Grier appeared in an episode of the Golden Globe-winning series “The Man from U.N.C.L.E.”, while in 1969, he starred in his debut TV movie called “The Desperate Mission”, and then played in “Carter’s Army” (1970). From 1969 to 1970, Grier had a role in 16 episodes of “Daniel Boone” and then in six episodes of the Golden Globe Award-nominated “Make Room for Granddaddy” (1970-1971).
