Pittsburgh Steelers Rumors: OT Winston Justice meets with Steelers


Now that the NFL Draft is in the books, the Pittsburgh Steelers, along with every other NFL team, are looking to fill the needs they didn’t get to address in the draft.

One of those needs is additional depth on the offensive line and they could be turning to a proven NFL veteran to fill that void.

According to Adam Schefter of ESPN, former Indianapolis Colts and Philadelphia Eagles tackle Winston Justice is making a quick tour.

He was scheduled to meet the Steelers on Monday and will be visiting the Cleveland Browns on Wednesday.

Justice is still a capable player, starting 12 games for the Colts last year, but once the Colts landed Gosder Cherilus, the writing was on the wall for Justice.

The former USC product is only 28 and after playing his first six years in the league for the Eagles, his stop in Indianapolis lasted just a year.

Adding another tackle wouldn’t be the worst idea in the world.

Second-year pro Mike Adams will likely get the first shot at left tackle after playing the right side for a few games last season, with Marcus Gilbert likely staying on the right side. Bringing in a veteran who can play either side would make sense in case Adams struggles out of the gate.

If the Steelers are unable to sign a veteran such as Justice, they could turn their attention back to free agent Max Starks, who always seems to be there for them on a one-year deal when they need offensive line help.
