Winston Justice visiting Steelers, Browns
By Jamison Hensley
Free-agent offensive tackle Winston Justice is taking a short tour of the AFC North, visiting the Pittsburgh Steelers today before meeting with the Cleveland Browns on Wednesday, according to ESPN NFL Insider Adam Schefter.
Justice, 28, played six years for the Philadelphia Eagles (2006-2011) before joining the Indianapolis Colts last season. He was a two-year starter for the Eagles and made 12 starts for the Colts last year. Justice was the top right tackle in the AFC South last season, according to division blogger Paul Kuharsky.
The Steelers and Browns both have unproven backups at the tackle spots. Pittsburgh hasn't re-signed Max Starks, so it has Kelvin Beachum as the top reserve. Cleveland has Oniel Cousins and Ryan Miller behind Joe Thomas and Mitchell Schwartz.
The Steelers didn't take an offensive lineman with any of their nine picks in this year's draft, and the Browns selected one, Chadron State's Garrett Gilkey in the seventh round.
