Steelers, Browns meeting with Winston Justice

Winston Justice AP

With the draft over, teams which weren’t able to fill specific needs are starting to reach out to free agents.

And according to Adam Schefter of ESPN, former Colts and Eagles tackle Winston Justice is making a quick tour. He’s scheduled to meet the Steelers today and the Browns on Wednesday.

Justice is an acceptable player, starting 12 games for the Colts last year, but was displaced in Indianapolis when they backed the truck up for Gosder Cherilus. He played his first six years in the league for the Eagles.

The Browns barely drafted anyone, and didn’t add any offensive line help until the seventh round. That’s more than Pittsburgh did, however, and they need some depth there.

    Me thinks he’ll be too expensive for Pittsburgh. Perhaps Max Starks is figuring out his market value isn’t as high as he thought it would be after a solid 2012 campaign. For some reason the coaching staff never really liked him (as evidenced by them trying to replace him almost every year. Remember jonathan scott?), but the fans all loved him and would welcome him back ASAP (as a backup and injury assurance).

    Bigger question is what his price is now, and whether or not his 350 pound frame fits in with what they want to do with their new scheme (reportedly more zone concepts, lots of movement, etc.)

    Underrated player, good athlete. Maybe the Eagles should also look into bringing him back as insurance in case Peters isn’t ready.

    “He’s scheduled to meet the Steelers today and the Browns on Wednesday.”

    This dude is going from a visit with the class of the AFCN directly to visiting the basement dwellers. He should visit Pit, then Cin, then Bal, and then Cle – as long as he’s going slummin’ after today’s visit, might as well lower the expectations a bit each visit.

    Rather bring back Max Starks than sign Justice.

    Pittsburgh’s reign as the class of the AFCN ended on 9/11/11. I’m sure they’ll climb back from 8-8, but let it happen yet.

    I have no problems with Justice as a Colts fan. Just dont expect too much! Hes serviceable at best

    Rather see Starks come back

    He was scheduled to meet the Browns first but Joe Banner said, ” No, go head, you go first, Steelers.”

    haha, yeah…does the “class” of a division usually involve finishing 8-8, capturing the illustrious honor of third place? your sentence should read “this dude is going from a visit with an old, busted, rapidly declining with no hope for being competitive over the next few years to visiting a young, up and coming team with actual good players that aren’t perpetually injured or 50 years old.” nice try, though.

    Max Starks gave up THREE sacks last year. I have no clue as to why the Steelers haven’t signed him already.

  14. steel2372 says: Apr 29, 2013 7:26 PM

    Bring back Starks We dont need justice.

  15. kwjsb says: Apr 29, 2013 7:38 PM

    This guy would be a back-up on the Browns line….. Is that what he really wants?

    Yea all u haters hating on the Steelers when all of yinz get six Super Bowl championships then u all can bash the team until then shut ur freakin mouths

  17. blackngold4life says: Apr 29, 2013 8:16 PM

    Anybody they sign now will be on the super Cheap.. That 5m kick back from Colon wont take effect till June.. Maybe then they’ll call up Max..he’s be nothing but consistent every year and the Steelers continue to do him bad..

  18. bobzilla1001 says: Apr 29, 2013 8:22 PM

    The Steelers’ offensive line as a whole gave up just 37 sacks last season. Max Starks was the line’s most constant and consist performer in 2012.
    The Steelers ought to feel fortunate to have him. Instead, Starks is another former Cowher draftee who has been treated with disdain over the years by Tomlin.
    Makes zero sense.

    Listen to the Steelers fans bad mouthing their own coach! Like you can do better? Stick to swinging those little towelettes.

    so…you’re acknowledging that your team is old and busted, but you think that championships you won in the past are supposed to make that not relevant to this season? interesting argument…

    now we just need to get some Cubs fans on here talking about BACK TO BACK CHAMPIONSHIPS, BABY! 1907 and 1908…who can match that? pathetic.
