Chargers looking at another veteran O-lineman
By Bill Williamson
The San Diego Chargers’ search for offensive line help has brought them to Winston Justice.
U-T San Diego reports Justice will visit the teams Monday. The Chargers badly need a left tackle. Justice has been a right tackle.
Unless the Chargers think Justice can make the switch to the left side, he’d be a backup for first-round pick D.J. Fluker on the right side.
Perhaps the Chargers want to see Justice, 28, and former Eagles’ teammate King Dunlap, also known as a better right tackle than a left tackle, compete at left tackle. Justice started 12 games at right tackle for Indianapolis. New San Diego general manager Tom Telesco was with the Colts with Justice.
Right now, Dunlap is considered the best in-house option at left tackle and he is not considered as a strong option. The Chargers recently visited with Pittsburgh left tackle Max Starks. At this point, it is believed he is still in the mix.
