Winston Justice to visit with Lions

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.
