NFL Free Agency News: OT Winston Justice to visit the Browns

Veteran offensive tackle Winston Justice will be visiting the Cleveland Browns this week, reports ESPN’s Adam Schefter.

Justice was the 39th-overall pick by the Philadelphia Eagles in 2006, smack in the middle of current Browns CEO Joe Banner’s tenure with the team. He was traded to the Indianapolis Colts last off-season where he started at right tackle. After leaving the 2012 season finale against the Baltimore Ravens, Justice’s replacement allowed 2.5 sacks and five quarterback hurries to current Brown linebacker Paul Kruger. Justice would likely provide depth at the right tackle spot in Cleveland.

Justice is visiting the Pittsburgh Steelers on Monday and would conceivably have to leave without signing a contract to make it to Berea.

    As I said on Twitter (tweet tweet), I prefer Maine Justice.

    With the Pilot Flying J legal morass as a backdrop, the notion of ‘Justice visiting Berea’ couldn’t be any more poetic…

  • The_Real_Shamrock

    Haslam heard this possibility and probably thought, “Here too where am I safe?”

  • Garry_Owen

    No Justice. Just us.

  • mgbode

    remember the days when this would be for a starting OT spot?

    (love that we have JoeT and Schwartz bookending things now)

  • Jaker

    I prefer Dark Knight Justice

    Smart strategy by agent, setting up division interviews back to back. Assuming he really wants to go to Pittsburgh.

    I’m sure he does.

  • derek

    can he play guard?

  • Vindictive_Pat

    I’m assuming we want that too if he was, in fact, an offensive lineman for the Eagles last season.

  • Hypno_Toad

    With Mack in the middle holding it down. Oh to think how good this line could be if we had some guards….
