Winston Justice to visit with Lions

AP

Looking-for-work offensive tackle Winston Justice is apparently willing to overlook past slights.

According to Jason La Canfora of CBSSports.com, Justice will visit with the Lions today.

The visit is noteworthy on several fronts.

First, Justice became extraneous in Indianapolis when the Colts signed former Lions right tackle Gosder Cherilus to a massive deal in the early moments of free agency.

But Justice was also in the middle of a flap with the Lions last year, when his former Colts teammate Mike McGlynn accused Lions defensive tackle Ndamukong Suh of celebrating when Justice was injured. The league cleared Suh of any wrongdoing, and Suh denied he’d do such a thing.

The Lions could offer a shot at a starting job at right tackle, where he’d compete with Jason Fox and Corey Hilliard on a reconfigured line.

  1. Sweet baby Jesus! I remember being infuriated when the Eagles traded up to pick him one spot before the Lions in the ’06 draft. Here’s to him having something (anything) left in the tank.

  2. hahaha CM3 owned this guy in the WC game against the eagles.

    WJ had 3 penalties in 2 downs against CM3

  3. If he signs there, that’ll be a good trade off of right tackles, since their last one signed with the Colts.

    Good luck getting Justice to play even 50% of the snaps.

  4. I’m still waiting for an explanation of how Justice “was also in the middle of a flap with the Lions last year.” So his teammate accused a Lion of something? How does that put Justice in the middle?

    Clearly putting Suh’s name in a post drives up hits. There’s no other explanation for dropping his name into a post about a visit by an OT to the Lions.
