    Winston Justice wouldn't be signed for depth. He'd be signed to start. This would slow the development of one of the young OT's on the roster.

    Not saying it's a bad thing, but is that the right call? Or should Gilbert & Adams get thrown into the fire?

    I would think that Justice would be depth, which is what I would want...but is Justice really considered an upgrade though..? I highly doubt so.

    Are you doing what I did initially and confusing him with Eric Winston? Because Eric Winston would be brought in to start, no question. Winston Justice, on the other hand, I think is likely just a depth player.

    I didn't realize what a good season Justice had last year. If we could land him, it would really solidify our line.

    Top of the Tackles

    When you think of the top pass protecting tackles in the league, how long is it before the name Winston Justice springs to mind? It’s gone largely unnoticed but in his 173 pass blocks he’s given up just two hurries, compared to his teammate Anthony Castonzo who has given up 19 quarterback disruptions on his 247 pass blocks. Quite the discrepancy. Castonzo is far from the bottom, so this more an indication of how rock solid Justice has been and how important it is the Colts keep him healthy.
    While Justice has the top rating there’s always more interest in left tackles, so who leads the way there? Well, step forward Ryan Clady who is picking the right time to produce his best form with his contract coming up. He’s building himself a case for Joe Thomas-type money with the Cleveland Brown left tackle just behind him in the third spot.
    It’s not a surprise to see Duane Brown fourth, but kudos to Marshall Newhouse who finds himself up in fifth overall. In 2011 he had the lowest score of all left tackles and has taken a giant leap forward. The sight of both Brown and Newhouse so high should act as a reminder to be patient with tackles, with both men having terrible seasons when they started.

    Free agent OT Winston Justice will visit Steelers, Browns

    By Neal Coolong on Apr 29 2013



    Steelers not done digging around the free agency market, likely in response to the fact they did not draft an offensive linemen in this past weekend's draft.

    Multiple sources have reported the Steelers will meet with free agent offensive lineman Winston Justice. If no agreement is made (or the Steelers don't give him the leverage of lording a visit to the Browns over their heads), he intends to visit the Browns.

    Neither the Steelers nor the Browns addressed the offensive line in the draft, although the Steelers brought in multiple undrafted free agent offensive linemen. The Steelers appear set with starters Mike Adams and Marcus Gilbert at either right or left tackle, and Kelvin Beachum started six games at right tackle last year after both Adams and Gilbert were injured. It has been said Beachum has been working inside this offseason, and could be used to bolster interior depth.

    Hence, probably why the Steelers are still looking at free agency to address the coveted swing tackle position - arguably the most valuable spot on the Steelers roster.

    Exactly how much cap room the Steelers have is an interesting projection. After having signed LaRod Stephens-Howling to what is thought to be a minimum deal, the team is looking at roughly $1 million in space, which would likely be enough to sign Justice.

    Justice played 12 games at right tackle for the Colts in 2012. A second round pick out of USC in 2006 by Philadelphia, he was traded to Indianapolis last year.

    I remember his first NFL start when he gave up 6 sacks in one game to Osi Umenyiora.
