Last offseason, new general manager Ryan Grigson used free agency to fill holes in the Colts’ roster. Grigson filled some of the starting spots with players with previous experiences with people on the Colts’ staff. Grigson signed players like Tom Zbikowski, Mike McGlynn, and Cory Redding to short, vet contracts to play for the Colts, filling voids with vets for the 2012 season.
One such veteran was the Philadelphia Eagles’ second round pick in 2006: offensive tackle Winston Justice.
Justice started for the Eagles in 2009 and 2010 (played 16 and 13 games), but was benched for Todd Herremans in 2011, and struggled with knee injuries throughout the season. Grigson, a former personnel man for Philadelphia, thought Justice could regain his poise in 2012 as a starter at right tackle, and traded for Justice (swapping 6th round picks in the 2012 draft).
Now, with the 2012 season finished with the Colts’ loss to the Baltimore Ravens, it’s time to review anybody and everybody. We looked at impending free agent Donnie Avery last week, now we move to Winston Justice.no comments
