The Denver Broncos announced the team has signed offensive tackle Winston Justice.
Justice has started 43 of his 59 career NFL games with the Eagles and Colts after being selected by Philadelphia in the second round of the 2006 NFL Draft.
He was traded to the Colts in 2012 and started 12 games there before becoming a free agent in 2013, and he’ll add some experienced depth to help replace Ryan Clady at the left tackle position for the Broncos.
Justice graded out as the 45th best offensive tackle in the league, so he’s an average to below average starter according to their metrics.
Chris Clark is ready to start in Clady’s place at left tackle, but the Broncos wanted some veteran insurance behind him with the guys on the practice squad just not being ready for NFL action at this point.
Justice was not signed by anyone for training camp or even the pre-season, but he was given a look by a variety of teams, including the Chargers, Titans, Lions, and Dolphins.
According to the team’s official site, Justice will wear #77 for the Broncos.
